Idle is

/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/bin/idle

First thing you want to do is install readline to make the interactive
interpreter useable:

http://pythonmac.org/packages/

Other things to try:
  Aquamacs with python-mode
    http://www.aquamacs.org
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/python-mode/
    http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/CustomizeAquamacs (instructions)
    
    I prefer a less aggressively "aquafied" emacs like:
      http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/emacs-en/CarbonEmacsPackage
    but someone who has never used emacs before might not care.
   
  Eclipse + pydev:
    http://www.eclipse.org
    http://pydev.sourceforge.net/

  SPE or Eric3:
