"RAD-IDE" environments usually provide things like UI layout and boilerplate
generation.  But UI layout is really a small part of the work on any app
(though one of the more tedious chores), and Python doesn't need all that
boilerplate that C++ does.  That said, there are several RAD/IDEs for Python
such as Boa Constructor (for wxPython) and Eric (for PyQt).  

I use pygtk with glade for layout and XEmacs for editing.
