- Those who are new to python, more comfortable in an IDE, and want a
Python-enabled IDE that they can use without having to pay now

- Those who would prefer to use one IDE for many different languages
that may include Java and C/C++

- Those who have been doing the "Emacs/Vi" and command line thing for
a while and would like to try an IDE without having to pay yet

- Those who may have to work on multiple different platforms (say
Linux, Windows, and OS X) on a day-to-day basis and would rather not
have to maintain multiple different IDE skillsets for the same

- Those who are dabbling in Python, aren't sure that they're going to
stick with it, and would  have a hard time justifying spending money
on a piece of software that they may not use again in a month

There are certainly great "for pay" IDE's out there, and Eclipse may
lack huge featuresets that these commercial IDE's have.  Howerver, to
suggest that those who would use Eclipse are socialists kinda rankles,
you know?
