For a long time, I have been using emacs as my Python IDE and have
found that python-mode can be improved - see
for my version. Also a straight-forward way of using pdb under emacs,
can be found at http://page.sourceforge.net/tricks.html. These two
tweeks make a great difference for me.
Am happy to learn about ELSE from these postings, I will give it a try
