My ssh client internally has a fairly powerful Python library for
creating tabbed application-specific terminal emulator displays; you
could think of it as "VteRunner".  

For example, if you want to create a little application that wraps e.g.
"mutt" with buttons for sending mail, that's not too hard.  Right now I
have applications for both ssh and sudo.
