Delphi underrated, IDE clues for Python

thx, I already have and use PythonForDelphi (and am on the mailing list).
It works very well indeed, my impression is that Python-Delphi connection
is even easier than Python-C integration (e.g. via SWIG, etc), due once
again to the Delphi IDE. Drag-n-drop in the IDE gets you python code in
your delphi code, or delphi units/objects accessible in python.
However, Delphi is not platform indpendent (which is important for me as I
use a different OS at work and at home), and I don't know if
PythonForDelphi supports Kylix. I am fairly sure it doesn't support
Lazarus, which IS platform independent, but not as feature-rich as Delphi.
Btw, on the SHOOTOUT page, you'll see that the Delphi rank for LOC is 28.
This number is pretty meaningless in practice because the IDE does a lot
of code generation for you. More interesting would have been to see the
rank for LOC you have to type yourself...
