    Yes, it can. There are a couple of extension libraries that have been written to do that sort of thing too. Check out the libraries section of the site and look for SDL_gui and GUIlib. They aren't incredible but a lot of the basics are there.

    I haven't done much Python programming but you might be able to get away with creating a wrapper for the C++ code. I don't know how easy (if possible) that would be in Python.
    At worst case, you have the source code so you could port it over to Python.
    If you're looking to have a complete GUI toolkit (and don't want to spend a lot of time) you might want to look at some other options, maybe TK perhaps.
