I highly recommend SDL as a cross-platform windowing library.  Has much better context creation support from GLUT.  In Python, that's PyGame.  PyGame and PyOpenGL should theoretically work on all platforms. 

Pygame was a bear last year to get running on my Mac; it never fully worked. I'd be reassured if someone has.

Also, at this point, I see no documentation about getting a Core Profile context in PyGame. SDL has support, but I don't see it being passed onto PyGame yet (checked the bitbucket src; its doesn't seem to have the write constants).
