Yes I was thinkiing Python as well, not just due to the fact that it is the 
only progarmming laguage that i am conversent in at the moment, but it's got 
all the components needed - as you mentioned - but due to the fact that it is 
the closest language that linux has to a RAD package.

It also has gnome bindings as well.  So graphic frontends can be written for 
all the major GUI's.
