FWIW, emacs has

- a python-mode that let you run either your whole script or parts of it 
into a python shell - that of course stays open, so you can examine the 
state after execution etc... and it works just fine with pdb.
- ECB (emacs-code-browser), that adds a file explorer and 
functions/classes inspector

The combination gives you a full-blown IDE.
