Your requirement of cross-platform operation greatly limits the toolkits available to you (QT, GTK and WxWidgets).  You might consider creating a web-based interface, as that has as few "dependencies as possible."  The Python Paste project has a nice Python-based WSGI-capable web server, so that you can keep your whole stack in Python.

If you had used Lisp, you could already be working in your own domain-specific Lipid Lisp =)
