[Chicago] The Casual Web Programmer

My primary use of Python is as a general purpose programming language
for systems integration, utilities, and so forth.  From time to time,
I am called upon to do a bit of Web stuff.  To date I've done it the
very manual way using emacs to edit HTML.  But, I'd like a higher productivity
environment for doing this stuff.  Can anyone recommend a web development
environment that meets these requirements:

1) Python enabled
2) Very fast learning curve for the web non-specialist
3) Excellent runtime performance
4) Compatible with Restructured Text (nice to have)
5) Ease of maintenance
6) Tools for browser-side scripting for AJAX-like look (nice to have)

IOW, I want the most painless path possible to a low/medium-complexity
web app.
