Smile Building a GUI for iptables

I've been thinking of doing a GUI for my iptables, like those we do with VIsual Basic, a pop-up window with a few scroll-down options to choose from( for example, click ENABLE to enable filtering of rules, choose from a few rules provided, and click EXECUTE to run the wanted rules on an iptables), meaning that we do not have to edit the iptables rules from the file itself by iptables programming.

I hope you can guide me if it can be done, and which is the easiet programming language to use, for example, Perl, Phyton...

Thanks a lot!!

Have you looked at fwbuilder, guarddog or firestarter?
