I mostly use jEdit. Good points:

- single window (as opposed to IDLE)
- Console plugin
- great search & replace

Weaknesses:

- syntax highliting fooled by some raw strings (like r"\one_backslash")
- multi-line comment-out is ugly

IDLE is my second editor of choice. Good points:

- interactive shell
- data inspect after run (in the shell)
- correct syntax highliting
- good (visible) multi-line comment-out
- at least partial code completion

Weaknesses:

- separate window for each module

HTH,
