  I am currently PyDev with eclipse. It works, more or less. At the very 
least, it does as much as pretty every other Python Editor I have seen, 
plus it is famillair to me since I spend most of my time in eclipse.

It does not however provide those niceties made easy by Java's static 
typing. I.e. refactorin, ctrl-click to go to definition, etc ...

It is supposed to include a debugger, but I havent had the chance to try 
it out yet.
