Before I start my rant remember that I am speaking from a pure python
development perspective. So translate wxWidgets to wxPython and GTK2
to PyGTK.

Right now my only argument against wxWidgets is a (percieved?) lack of
overlay capabilities in  specifying widgets. This is important to me
because it would allow extensions to integrate seamlessly, providing
buttons and menus where they are most useful. I know this can be done
in other ways, but using an xml-based GUI specification that is
capable of handling overlays seems like the easiest way to wrap it all

That is why I think PyGTK (GTK2) is the better choice for this.
