I use it a fair bit - for projects of reasonable size where a good
graphical debugger can be useful. It's big and chunky for sure, and I
_really_ wish it would break on exception by itself, but it does a job
for me, and the chunkiness is only really a problem when it starts. You
can turn it to Java and C very easily as well if you have to, which is a
plus. Given the choice I'd probably use Wing but pydev is pretty damn
good for free.

Django support is a bit lacking but Fabio has said that will be
addressed in the next release.
