I'm also starting with Python after abandoning idea to use D for our
desktop GUI application.

We plan to use Python + Qt along with Cython extensions and wrapping
external C library.

I'm interested which Python mode can you recommend for Emacs:

a) python.el

b) python-mode.el or

c) 'new' python.el (

considering our needs above and desire to use IPython running
Emacs-23.2 on FreeBSD?
