Since we're talking about PythonWin...

It would also be nice if extra-long lines wrapped in the interactive
mode (when printing out a list, for example). When I'm playing with
stuff, let's say I print out a directory listing of files in the current
working directory, it is one long line that goes way off the viewable
IDE screen.

So I usually have to whip out IDLE for that type of stuff.
