Why not use Riaan Booysens Boa Constructor IDE or Mark Hammonds
Use the cvs checkout, not the 0.0.4 download from September, which is almost
Both use the scintilla control (http://www.scintilla.org/), btw.
For pure Python work, especially for Windows specific stuff, I prefer
PythonWin. But for platform independent work and Zope works Boa Constructor
looks very promising.
It's pure Python and wxPython (i.a. wxWindows) based, it even comes with a
first attempt of a Zope interface! I wonder that it doesn't get more publicity here.
On the other hand, I noticed that Shane Hathaway is listed as one of the

Well, I use Boa on Windows 2000, but I don't see any reason why it shouldn't

Well, it's possible to run multiple copies of Boa. It's only usefull when working
on different projects concurrently, though. Usually I prefer opening many files in
a single instance.

That's a scintilla feature, so it comes for free (so to speak) with both PythonWin
and Boa Constructur (and SciTE, Scintillas own tiny editor, of course).
