I don;t know about templates but there are instructions on the MacPython
pages that tell you how to set up XCode. I used it for some experiments
in Cocoa programming on my Mac. But it was a while ago.

Lots of possible reasons:
1) He is already using XCode for other Mac projects and
wants a familiar tool
2) XCode is a better editor than IDLE
3) He wants to do Cocoa (Mac GUI) programming and XCode
provides integration with the MacOS GUI creator
4) He wants to have a mixed language program using
Objective C and Python in the same project.
Any and all are perfectly reasonable and valid.
