hrmmm, it's not listed but I could demo some features for editing
python code in TextMate [1] if enough people were interested.  I've
been committing various commands/snippets/syntaxes/ to the Bundles
repository [2] way back since TextMate was in beta (when it sucked!).
There are perhaps a few undocumented bundles that I could highlight.
I don't know if it would be a very exciting presentation; it's just an
editor.  And it's not emacs! :)  It's also commercial, fyi.
