I'd say it depends at least in part what language the script is
already in, and how difficult it would be to rewrite it vs. how much
of a pain the gui is in whatever language it's already in.
That said, the Python Tk bindings are nice. My personal favorite for
any database work remains Perl, and Perl/Tk is very nice and very
stable. Your decision will stem partly from the answer to "how sexy
is sexy?" but overall, it sounds like Qt or GTK are proably overkill
for what your talking about.
You could also write it as CGI or PHP to make it extrememly
sexy/annoying as you want.
