I don't know about your IDE, I am using the default IDLE just because it 
is handy.  But I have made the switch from mod_python.  It was a good 
idea, but mod_wsgi is a better idea.  And as you know, mod_python is no 
longer supported.

I am running Apache with mod_wsgi in a windows 7 environment -- I am 
working on implementing Pylons.

Also, I have another Apache server with mod_wsgi serving a MoinMoin 
wiki.  This one is on a good os -- Fedora.
