I've written an extension for VIM to allow context sensitive help for python
code.  It looks up the __doc__ or __dict__ field for builtins, modules and
module members when you hit F2. 

It does a little more than idle and pythonwin.  I hope to add more when I find
some time.  Please send me your ideas!
You can grab it at:

You will need a version of VIM compiled with an embedded python interpreter.
