This looks like "just another IDE". The fact that it was written in
Delphi doesn't make it better.
It is lacking what most Python IDE's are lacking ; "A Delphi-quaility"
RAD environment for building a UI.
QT Designer is the probably the one which is the closest, but is still
far from being Delphi-like, and the installation/compilation for the
QT framework is complicated.

As far as non-RAD IDE's for Python, Wing IDE is the front runner, and
not that expensive.
The Eric4 IDE is free, but again requires installing/compiling QT4,
and QT designer is it's GUI design tool.
