Python vs. C++ Builder - speed of development

Hi all,

I don't want to start a thread comparing the Python and C++ languages, but
one question bothers me. Using Python, you can of course develop very
quickly due to high level constructs and the absence of compilation. On the
other hand, so-called "builder IDEs" or "RAD-IDE" (i.e. Borland C++ builder,
Microsoft Visual C++) also promise to allow you to develop quickly, even in
a less high-level language.

Therefore, my question is:

Is, or under which circumstances is the time which can be gained by using a
RAD-IDE equivalent to the time gained by using Python directly?
