The “Emacs Code Browser” <URL:> was seemingly
designed for languages like C++ and Java, but it serves well enough for
Python also.

I find it annoying to use, since it seems to assume mouse navigation and
has rather impenetrable (for me) documentation. But it does seem to do
much of what you're asking for, and a big plus is that it's not specific
to Python.
