[Tutor] PyCrust IDE/Shell

I agree that pycrust is faster in terms of autocomplete. However, I love
being able to to just hit f5 to run my code in the shell while in the Python
IDLE environment. I wonder if this is possible with pycrust . . .

. . . on the wxPython page I found a list of other py related programs:


   - PyAlaCarte
   - PyAlaMode
   - PyCrust
   - PyFilling
   - PyShell
   - PyWrap

The most interesting to me is pywrap: "PyWrap is a runtime utility that lets
you run an existing wxPython program with a PyCrust frame at the same time.
Inside the PyCrust shell namespace, the local variable app is assigned to
your application instance. In this way you can introspect your entire
application within the PyCrust shell, as well as the PyFilling namespace

Has anyone tried any of these yet?
