One particularly useful feature is doctest-mode.  Which makes the  
shell look just like a regular python shell, but allows you to paste  
in doctest style code.  Very useful for copying and pasting code from  
the web to try it out.

# Eg.  Pasting in exactly this, will work
 >>> x = 1
 >>> print x
# It strips out all the leading >>>
