If you use wxWidgets, you may want to have a look at projects like
Boa-constructor or PythonCard. If you use QT/KDE, Eric3 offers good
integration with QT Designer IIRC.
Now as you can see, the problem with RAD tools is that they are specific
to a given GUI toolkit. Python runs on a lot of platforms, and some of
these platforms (ie Linux) are not tied to a specific GUI toolkit. So
integrating the RAD tool in the IDE means you can't use this IDE with
other GUI toolkits.
Also, there's a tradition in the *n*x world about preferring small,
highly specialized tools over huge monolithic do-it-all applications. As
an example, I daily use half a dozen languages, and I wouldn't like to
have to learn half a dozen IDEs. I'm much more productive with a good
code editor, the command line, and a few external tools when needed.
My 2 cents...
python -c "print '@'.join(['.'.join([w[::-1] for w in p.split('.')]) for
p in 'onurb at xiludom.gro'.split('@')])"
