Check "Contributions" page:
A GNOME integration project is about to start. I guess it's worth
joining them.

Anyway, I'm afraid you'll get hard time writing GUI in Python. I was
investigating the issue a little and it appears that PyXPCOM wrappers
which do exists will not work with VirtualBox XPCOM component out of
the box - you'll need to patch/rebuild them. Maybe I'm wrong - in this
case I would appreciate if you point me to PyXPCOM binding which works
with VirtualBox.

Standard disclaimer: I'm not a VirtualBox developer.
