Probably, but KDE's Kommander and Kaptain are written with similer aims, a
IDE and GUI builder for any scripting language the base linux system
supports. They are based on Trolltech's Qt Script, and depending on your
needs that itself may suffice. While the K brothers are aimed towards
casual users writing stuff for themselves, QSA's approach is largely to
let application developers provide scriptability to their users.

For more details:
$ wget
http://cesnet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/quanta/kommander-supplement.tar.bz2
or:
$ wget www.rootshell.be/~upadhyay/resize.kmdr
$ kmdr-editor resize.kmdr
$ kmdr-executor resize.kmdr

When you do that look for "Edit Text Association" after right clicking on
various widgets in the form, esp on the "Resize" button. You will need
recent version of Quanta installed on your system though.

Ofcourse MyQSL etc has to be done by some scripting language/a.out. Python
is quite nice, so is perl, php etc.

Have fun.
