Seriously?  Emacs has that all built-in.  You can even write a very short
elisp function to strip the extra linefeeds and rewrite tab characters and
add that to the list of functions that Emacs executes after loading a Python
program (probably in something like python-mode-hook) so that every file you
ever open will be cleaned up properly.

I'm sure that some of the commercial IDEs have nice things to offer, but
Emacs can probably handle much of what you're looking for already.
