Good write up!

Eclipse has pydev which is wonderful for python work ;) . It has autocompletition, debug support, syntax highlighting, outline and all the other advantages that eclipse offers ;)

That performance increase is really good. Python is still a slow language but for RAD it's awesome. It would be interesting to see if the cpython beats Ironpython in peformance now (this will prove even more that .net is only designed for imperative and statically typed code).
