I developed one in wxPython, you can see some of the features here.

Although it's part of a larger part it can be used standalone,
but then it requires two actions copy and paste.
Started from a python application you can do copy+paste with just one 
It has integrated a full blown scintilla editor,
with syntax highlighting, code completion, and syntax checker.

If there's interest, I can distribute the files as a separate package.
