IMO there is no project so modest that it doesn't require version control.
Especially since version control is as simple as:

cd project
hg init
hg add
hg commit

FWIW I also don't find a need for an IDE for Python - I'm quite happy using
EditPlus (which I preferred enough to other alternatives on Windows to pay
for many years ago).
