If you are going to use wxPython, check out wxDesigner. 
(http://www.roebling.de).  It's not free and it's not
Open Source, but it's only $US89 and it can
act as a decent RAD tool.  It can build a lot
of your app's GUI framework. 

I have not used wxDesigner a lot yet, but I bought the
BlackAdder personal use (beta) package. Largely a 
waste of money. It's debugger is nearly useless and BA
crashes constantly.  It's aspect as an extension of
QT designer is interesting, and it bears watching to
see if it improves when they bring out the real thing.

Wing IDE is nice for debugging.  Wing comes with
source, it's just not Open Source.

I think a combo of wxDesigner and Wing would
be nice (and it's what I am planning to use
myself till something better comes along.)
