There are a couple of initiatives emerging with this goal.

a ) The neural ensemble: http://www.neuralensemble.org/
It has several projects, most notably PyNN, "a Python package for 
simulator-independent specification of neuronal network models". It is 
rapidly growing and already in widespread use.
There is also NeuroTools, a python package for data analysis from 

b) The find toolbox: http://find.bccn.uni-freiburg.de/
"A Matlab-based, open-source analysis toolbox for multiple-neuron 
recordings and network simulations." 

I'm sure there are many more similar approaches; any suggestions are 
appreciated :)
