listing all (Python) files in the directory where foo.py is - with an
icon with a + sign in from of them. Click on the icon, and you get
the classes in that file. Doubleclick and XEmacs opens the file for

I don't know whether GNU Emacs also shows the icon, but the way

(The speedbar _is_ a bit buggy, though, at least in the version I
