Thanks for all of your responses.  I did forget to mention that I do use

It is safe to say that "my" definition of the perfect IDE would be one that
has reliable call-tips and auto-completions.  I have been doing Python for
about 2-2.5 years now.  Prior to using IDLE for modules that I am unfamiliar
with I have always used NP++.

Before Python was my primary language, it was straight VB, VBA, VBScript,
etc... That should give you some insight to where I am coming from.
