The MacPython IDE runs just fine under Mach-O Python. Basically, it just 
involves taking the Python.app and sticking PythonIDE.py in it and 
renaming it to __main__.py. Of course it's not as simple as that, you 
need to make sure all your dependencies are in place, but I could whip 
up a quick step-by-step HOWTO.

BTW, the dependencies are WASTE (There's instructions for building WASTE 
in the Mac/OSX/README I believe), making sure Mac/Tools/IDE is on your 
path, and making sure that python.rsrc is in the bundle's 
Contents/Resources (I think it's python.rsrc, it might be one of the 
other rsrc files)

When I find some time I'll write some step-by-step instructions for 
checking out from CVS and getting MacPython IDE running.
