I'd like to add that if/when you do decide to pick up an IDE, I suggest you
try Eclipse.  For one it will allow you to use it for other languages also
(Java, C++, et al).  Have a look at the following video demonstrating some
of the PyDev features in the following video (also a little demonstration
how to develop TDD "red, green, refactor" style) :
http://pydev.org/video_pydev_20.html  Unit testing (PyUnit & friends),
Source code style and problem checking (Pylint), code test coverage
(Coverage.py) are all usable from and integrated reasonably well, making
life just that little bit easier.
