I know there has been opposition of linking the Python interpreter into Avogadro for license and dependency reasons, but this seems to be a very straight-forward approach. Thoughts?

Why can't Avogadro just call the Python command-line? If cclib supports CML or CJson, there's no need to link to Python.

Alternatively, if Python bindings are added, this is a natural extension without needing the Python interpreter.

If this project is chosen (and I hope it is), a good student could evaluate the options and discuss. :-)

How fast OpenCube with generating surface data?

Not bad, but the VMD implementation is clearly faster, and I think with the EDT paper, a faster implementation of all types of surfaces could be found.
