I've been using Eclipse and Pydev and find it incredible.  I've been 
converting J word code into Python and this combination has greatly 
eased the task.  Finding errors as I edit instead of at run time makes 
an awesome difference to my productivity.  Quite why I was happy to slag 
off Eclipse maybe six months ago I don't know.  Does a good sized 
portion of humble pie make amends?
