what IDE is the best to write python?

I used eclipse/pydev quite some time. What pulled me back into the arms of 
emacs was:

 - ability to save bookmarks (meaning a point in  a file) at all the 
keystrokes. Never found out how to do that in eclipse. In emacs I have now all 
the times "j" save at the current working position, "f" at the last failure I 
have to work on, and so on.

- just faster then pydev. Once pydev tries to "understand" your python code 
(refactoring) you can go and get a coffee

- ecb, tabbar, psvn provide the same functionality of eclipse you use in 

Of course, it takes some time to use emacs. But it pays back with a nice 
Python integration and the advantage to customize everything you want.
