Have you tried wxglade? It's pretty good, Not all that, but pretty good.

As far as the syntax coloring goes, use vim. It's the best text editor 
on the open source/gnu/gpl market IMNSHO and it's rather intuitive. As 
far as the full code completion goes, the M$ .net studio killed me from 
ever wanting to see another ide that does that. While it's useful(and I 
think wxglade has a option for it) Personally I prefer to do most of 
everything in vi:) but I am a command line junkie also.

Python is quick in and of it's self. esp when you get into the functions 
and make it pull in thoes functions...
