I would use traits (see
http://code.enthought.com/projects/traits/documentation.php, and
http://code.enthought.com/projects/traits/docs/html/tutorials/traits_ui_scientific_app.html
for documentation and a tutorial)

The pro of traits is that it is really easy to use, and enforces good
software design.

The cons are that it is still not as mainstream as we would like. As a
result it is not installed on all computers. It is however shipped with
both major scientific Python distribution (python(x,y) and ETS), as well
as in ubuntu as debian, mandriva, and is currently being packaged for
fedora.
