Using emacs with Lisp or Scheme you can send a block of code to the
interpreter and do interactive incremental developement with a few
keystrokes. I have no idea of how to do the same in Python, so I just 
open a lower buffer and I cut and paste by hand the function I am testing. 
Is there a better way? You seem to imply there is ...
