I'm involved with an Open Source project called Dabo 'www.dabodev.com'. 
Currently, it is using wxPython for the UI.  But it was designed to use any 
UI package provided the correct wrappers are written.   But it does 
everything you are asking for and more.  I'm not trying to convert anyone - 
just trying to encourage others to write the the required wrappers.   I like 
QT and it would wonderful if I could use QT along with Dabo.
