GTK+ This version of Glade (Glade-3) is a complete rewrite of the original Glade codebase. One of the main differences from glade-2 is that C code generation has been removed from glade-3; the preferred way to use glade files is with libglade. Another main difference is that glade-3 was designed to make maximal use of GObject introspection, thus easing the integration of external toolkits and handling widgets, signals and properties genericly. It has a few useful new features such as stacked Undo/Redo and Multiple Project support and respects the same XML format as glade-2.

I don't know much about python/c integration, so maybe it's only 1 but I'd guess there's some extra overhead incurred by python plus overhead incurred by the glue code?

Considering how many of the standard Python libraries are just wrappers over C libraries as it is do you really think that Gtk is going to be a problem? The same is true for most of the other scripting languages. The only language I can think of offhand that will have a real performance penalty is Java and that's because of how inefficient JNI is.
