+1. (Having tried both ipython and bpython, I prefer bpython mainly because of 
the cleaner interface (ie: no unnecessary whitespace/newlines) and the ability 
to show the doc strings as you type).

I assume you meant vim. If that assumption is correct, there isn't much python 
specific that I do except for adding...

autocmd BufNewFile,BufRead *.py let python_highlight_all = 1

...to my ~/.vimrc. Read the comments at the top of vim's python syntax file 
(typically /usr/share/vim/vim<version>/syntax/python.vim on linux) to understand 
what that means.

However, non-python specific, I like the following vim scripts for coding:

taglist.vim [ http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=273 ]
supertab.vim [ http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1643 ]
vcscommand.vim [ http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=90 ]
NERD_tree.vim [ http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1658 ]
