I agree. As a python developper too, I owuld love to see a python binding.

The API should provide functions that are used in command-line tools, to be 
able to build a GUI, and interacting with different returned values, and 
potential errors...

Not all tools need to be re-designed through GUI. I think that profile, 
targen, and so, can be addressed through a system()-like (there are better 
way to do that in python). But dispcal, dispread... should be 
re-implemented in the GUI using the functions behind.
