Python heaven...

for python development, eclipse+pydev seem to be quite good. eclipse 
provides you with member function tab completion which is nice. I've 
never done any major python work, so I may be disswayed  once I have 
many modules and lots of .py files composing my project. But for now, 
it's gotten me going quite nicely.

Cheers. Steve.
