Many, but none that you won't find with emacs, so when I'm stating it is 
just a matter of personal preference, I mean it :o) "Vi or Emacs" is the 
same question as "straight or gay" (order matters! :D).
No one will come and convince you to use one or the other. Launch  both 
of them, look at the nice and smooth visual of gvim, compare it with the 
ugly skin of emacs and pick your choice !

Beside from trolling, here are the feature I'm using for python:
- syntax highligthts (there are hundreds of different themes, now way 
you can't find few you like)
- auto completion of symbols
- code browsing supporting tag files
- (almost) smart indentation

That's it
