yeah, for me I think of the IDE (and computers in general must be seen like that) as a coworker or as paring programming experience. So I agree I have been developing in Python without IDE a long time and I know if I had some features borrow from full featured IDEs will definitely   help me out.I will give a try to Vim asap, now I am trying Visual Studio now and it seems that is all I want.
