Use emacs as your Python IDE

Committed emacs users might take a look at a post by Ryan McGuire, Emacs as a powerful Python IDE, where he suggests how to set up your emacs environment for python hacking.
"A lot of people, for whatever reason, don't feel that Emacs is an IDE at all. I don't personally care what you define it as — the fact remains — Emacs is a powerful Python environment and despite being over 32 years old has proven to be just as modern as any IDE today, and remains THE most configurable editor (operating system?) ever."
The key enablers seem to be Pymacs, Rope, and Ropemacs.
