Yeah, I found Eric3 a while ago as well.  My one problem is that I 
couldn't get it to work with windows, every binary for QT that I tried 
didn't want to work.

Eric3 doesn't have a browsable source tree?

There is an editor called SPE (Stani's Python Editor).  It has comments 
and a browsable source tree.  I don't know if it has the keyboard 
shortcuts.  One thing that stops me from using it (as opposed to my own 
editor) is that it is really slow.  Start messing around with multiple 
buffers, or files larger than a few hundred lines.  Ick.
