Or use CTRL-Z to suspend the editor and fg to bring python up etc, 
lots of options, but.... His post suggested he wanted to do it 
all from within the python promppt - thats a tad harder!

Maybe emacs -nw would be your best bet - then you can split the 
screen in text mode, run a shell in one pane(running python) 
and edit the code in the other pane. However emacs may be 
as big a resource hog as X....

Just a thought, Its how I used to work on Unix before I got
a workstation and had to use a real VT200....
