[Chicago] IDEs

wxPython ships with a GUI building tool. It's not buggy, but I don't particularly like it. PyQt does as well, but I haven't used it. I would totally do all my desktop GUIs in PyQt if only they would release it under BSD or LGPL (like Qt itself).

I am not sure if you looked it wxPython at all. But it also has some GUI builders that generate code or uses mozilla-ish xml to dynamically build gui. I used wxWidgets for some commercial products so it really is not buggy if you know what your doing; however, it was the C++ interface. Moving to the Python wx from there made life really easy. If I would have gone straight to wxPython I think I would have gotten extremely frustrated (as many do) because the API does not really read that easily.  QT is also really nice.

Concerning IDE's

+1 Komodo
+1 VIM

I also tried Netbeans Python Beta recently which did a really good job at some stuff; although, I unsure about how well the debugger works.  I just did not have enough time to play around with it.
