I know! He is really asking a lot!
Ultimately, I think if you are comfortable with vi, stick with vi.
There are plenty of people who are using Python-specific
configurations of vi to good effect.
Personally, I like SciTE. Very small, very fast text editor based on
the Scintilla editor component. It doesn't autoindent Python
perfectly out of the box, but I wrote a patch for myself (which I'm
happy to share with anyone who's interested).
I also have dabbled with Geany, which someone mentioned earlier. I
already don't use all the features of SciTE, so I'm nowhere near
needing Geany's capabilities, but what I have seen of it I like, so I
am comfortable recommending it. It also is very actively maintained
and supported, if that makes a difference.
