I use vi, so take my advice with a grain of salt, but I think you should
include IDLE because there have been so many improvements with Python 2.3
(running code in a separate process, if nothing else), and it is the
standard IDE that comes with Python.  That would make three + IDLE for
your article, and you can get started on IDLE now.

This is Python.  We don't care much about theory, except where it intersects 
with useful practice.  --Aahz
