Thank you. If you read carefully what I wrote (not saying you have
to--I know all too well nobody does these days), I wasn't talking
about my own needs, but about why the Python community should
care. Personally, I play with IDEs now and then, but always come back
to a good text editor. If anything, I've been moving away from the IDE
world--the more experience I gain in coding, the better I like
VI. Yes, it's true: it may be possible to break the Emacs habit :-)

Yeah. Never got around to figuring it out.

Ooh, that sounds good. Would you be willing to share that code?
