It sounds to me like you're just looking for any old halfway decent embeddable 
programmer's editor that happens to have syntax definitions for Python.

I'd suggest you have a look at Scintilla. Quite a good editing control, I 
don't think it comes wrapped in ActiveX or anything like that, just interface 
it in your favourite language using the DLL's C API.
