Eric3 is very nice and moving forward ... I believe it is based on the
QT library which free ... yet not so free under windows (i have yet to
understand the business model).

Emacs I use for very small project (my finger talk emacs ;-) ) ... but
CTAGS is a bit cumbersome for large projects and as my architectures
have much need for improvements, I need powerful tools to find my way

PS: I also was taken aback by the fact that the PyDev license was
"per-year" ... it's like buying Word for a year only ... isn't it ?
