[python-uk] Eclipse + Pydev?

I also use this on a daily basis and am totally happy with it.

I have to say, for it to be useful, you absolutely need to have PyDev
Extensions installed. This used to be separate (paid-for) product, but is
now rolled into the main PyDev product.

The only complaint I have is that the IDE as a whole is a bit of a memory
hog. I've found this to get much worse since I turned on redirection of the
pylint output directly into the Eclipse console.
