Hello Prabhu,

Thanx for your input. I browsed the info relatively fast. 
Indeed it looks interesting. But the interface of the qme-dev workbench is nearly finished... in wxpython and should be out this or next week. 

I looked at Gael's article. yes impressive, but wxpython is relatively fast to do similar things as well. Albeit wxpython was not exactly designed for scientific work I have to admit. It is GUI only.

But the advantage of wxpython is that you can tape in the large wxpython library  of demos to develop very specific GUI fast look at the Demos that's impressive.  I am not sure that Traits has such large librairy of demo code available. Additionnaly you can get the support of the wxpython community which is vital when you want to go fast. - never heard of ETS before... unfortunately.
I would have known  Traits/ETS before, I would have considered it. I considered Qt and Tk and wxpython. and made a choice...2 months ago. And now, I cannot afford to learn a new language/wrapper for python's GUI. It took me too much time for wxpython and unfortunately, time is what I have the less...So I will stick to wxpython for the time being. But flexibility of qme-dev workbench allows to use Math-Plot-Lib (Pylab) and could certainly use the ETS lib in the future, if they do not conflict with wxpython.

If you want to participate to the workbench development you are warmly welcome.

I think it would be a good idea to use the Enthought Tool Suite (ETS)
(http://code.enthought.com/ets/) as the underlying toolset for this

Gael Varoquaux has written a very nice article highlighting why traits
UI (which is a part of ETS) is cool here:
