This doesn't really count as an IDE in the usual sense, but Emacs/XEmacs
with python-mode provides a fair amount of leverage to the programmer.  It
should probably be mentioned, if not tested.  There's the pdb-track stuff
which is part of python-mode, you can get help on the dotted expression
under the cursor with a keystroke (C-c C-h), it colorizes, etc.  You can use
Emacs TAGS files to help find function/class definitions.  Bicycle Repair
Man is also available.  It's a tool to help you refactor your code.  I'm
sure there's more I'm forgetting.

All in one svelte editor... ;-)
