The current finalists:

*Editra* with PyShell in Shelf

Pros: Syntax highlighting, tabs, ¿portable? and embedded python interpreter
(PyShell 0.8)
Cons: No run button or keyboard shortcut for quick running of script (made
issue: http://code.google.com/p/editra/issues/detail?id=641) and doesn't
save settings changes for editor

*PyScripter*

Pros: Syntax highlighting, tabs, ¿portable?, embedded python interpreter,
keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+F9 [though would prefer single key...]) and run
button
Cons: Unmaintained, so doesn't support x64 and has a few bugs

*UliPad*

Pros: Syntax highlighting, tabs, ¿portable?, embedded python interpreter,
keyboard shortcut (F5) and run button
Cons: Command-prompt window appears whenever script is run (could be admin
issues at Uni) and is unmaintained, so can expect bugs and non-modern
interfaces for length of use

Please continue suggesting Python IDEs and/or fixes for the above Cons.

Thanks,

Alec Taylor

FYI: I can't test Kate, as all the mirrors I've tried have no files on them.
