I also do most exec stuff on the command line - it needs to work there
anyway, so the additional config in PyCharm is really something on top that
I often don't do. However, running stuff within PyCharm can still be really
handy because it integrates very nicely with py.test and other test
runners. You get nice visual feedback for your tests, can rerun failing
tests with one click, can visually debug problems, get coverage analysis
for free, etc. It's all very nicely integrated.
