[PythonCE] IDE for Python on Windows Pocket PC?

IdleCE seems to be a very good editor for the PPC.  I found it in a bundle

The bundle includes PythonCE 2.3.4 (not the latest) but it has some very
interesting libraries (namely wx) and applications (IdleCE).  Furthermore
the bundle is basically set up to go on one's storage card (non-volatile
memory) which seems wise to me.  I recently benefited by running my python
app from the storage card because upon using a faster memory card my program
ran noticeably faster.  I'm really happy with the wx port but one must often
test their code on CE and not just on XP b/c debugging on CE can be tricky
and when the gears get gummed up it is slow!  Redirecting stdin/stdout
really helps this problem.

I second Vincenzo's recommendation for Eclipse and PyDev.  I'm also using
Subclipse with the two for Subversion control and it's very robust.  I have
encountered some issues when copying checked out code, editing it, and then
overwriting the original checked out code.  But I think I've resolved this
by updating Eclipse and the plugins.

Good luck,
