Does it have an integrated user-friendly debugger (not gdb/pdb-like),
something like right-click on a line and set a breakpoint?

If that GUD thing is only a crude interface like gdb/pdb, then no
thanks, I don't need it.

Otherwise, it would be really useful to have a web page that described
how to use it for Python development. Would be a nice addition to's Emacs page.
