High Level Language Integration

>>Forgive me for this as I am somewhat of an enthusiast, but I've noticed that Python has been trying to fill the niche of "high level language integrated into Gnome/Gtk+", but the discussion is almost always about Mono or Java. There is yet to be a real 'killer app' written in PyGTK as far as I know; although almost all of Fedora's distro specific tools (like Anaconda or many of the preference dialogs) are written in it.

I don't know if this qualifies as a "killer" app. I never use the term but I understand the context when it's used. Check out http://gramps.sourceforge.net . It is a great genealogical application to build and keep track of your family tree. It uses python, gnome-python, and pygtk2.
