I'm still fairly new on Python, but I have installed the latest 
Boa-Constructor IDE, and it has what I would call the beginnings of 
code-completion - you can type a dot after a class name then pop up a 
select-list of things belonging to that class (it may do more I haven't 
really looked into it).  The syntax coloring helps a little in 
double-checking your code as you go also.

On the tools side, it appears to hook in several useful things, profiling your 
code and checking its validity with PyChecker, which has a promising 
description page but I have not used it at all yet, this sounds like what you 

Does anybody use Boa-Constructor for their regular Python IDE, or just for 
designing forms ?  Is it worth the effort, or should one just keep an eye on 
it as a project-in-development still ?
