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.
