Hello,

          This is just a small suggestion but one tool that you could 
look at is jedit (http://www.jedit.org) - it often gets overlooked 
because as it's written in java python people sometimes think it for 
Jython only - not true my erstwhile friends!  It has a python plug-in 
and can do highlighting, project management, feed the dog and more.  It 
doesn't have a GUI designer but I understand you don't need that?

    Another IDE I use is Eclipse, I only use this for Java editing but I 
heard somewhere that it has a Python plugin - eclipse is way more 
complicated than jedit but if you learn how to use it there are 
significant productivity gains (at least with Java!).

Cheers,

Neil
