Actually, it does (Tools->Browser, Tools->Browse PythonPath).  It even has
COM browsing built in (at least in the ActiveState version, unsure about
the others).  Nifty stuff!

Also, pydoc should suffice for most "source browsing" needs: pydoc -p 8080
(python c:/python23/Lib/ -p 8080 on Windows) will start an HTTP
server on localhost:8080 you can use for module browsing (even of your own
classes).  pydoc -g will do the same, but also pop up a nifty little
search window.
