DrPython seems to be just what I'm looking for -- after a few bugs are 
fixed and the open file window is improved. I can't open files on 
computers on my local network because there's no mechanism to do that, I 
can't type in my own path (doesn't respond to me typing it in and 
hitting enter), and shortcuts to folders don't show up. I also managed 
to find a bug that consistenly makes my system hang :P

I'm e-mailing them the bugs, but overall the best IDE I've tried so far :D
