The IDE that comes with Python ias wtten in Python and the 
source comes as part of the standard library.

But if thats not enough try both sourceforge and the PyGame web sites.
On sourceforge search for projects using python... DIA is one that springs 
to mind(a Visio type drawing program)

PyGame has lots of Python games you can download, several with source.

You can use the python install tools or drive them with something 
higher level like Wize(?) or Installshield (or the free InstallMaker for 
Windows that I used to use... I don't know if its still extant however!)
