That's my opinion as well.

One debugging feature that Python doesn't support is "edit-while-debugging" (edit 
the function/method) you just debug, something which is possible in VB and VC6, 
for example) I think it'd not be *that* hard implementing it. Maybe a Python IDE 
vendor will implement it some day.
