[PythonCE] How to edit python files within WinCE env?

I'm brand spanking new to this mobile stuff so was pleased with how easy
it was to install pythonce on my new Dopod 818pro. I copied over a few
sample python programs from my development directory and they just
worked first time. Anyway - couple of newbie questions:
1. (bit off topic) Does Windows Mobile not have the concept of a
file extension? I copied a few *.py and *.pyc files but I can only see
the primary file name before the "." which means in the file listing it
looks like the same file twice.
2. How do I edit a python file within the environment? Clicking on
any of my copied programs results in its execution and I can't seem to
load them in an editor.
3. When typing at the command prompt for a multi-line statement like
for x in y:<cr>
At the point of the <cr> pythonce complains as though that was
the end of my statement and doesn't let me enter the indented second line.
4. Is there an up-to-date wiki or support web page for pythonce? I
found an old wiki but it doesn't seem to have been updated for a few years.
Thanx all for the great product port (I actually ran 2.5 on my Dopod
before I got it on my dev machines) and I look forward to doing some
serious python mobile development soon.
