Super duper Python IDE

Now this is an interesting post, why is so super? um... oh wait! it's created with... you guessed it! Delphi.
And the name of the IDE(Integrated Development Environment) i'm talking about is PyScripter, it can be downloaded by accessing this link from code.google.com(on the right side you can see a section called Featured downloads.
But this is just the IDE, you also need to download Python from this link.
Here is a list of PyScripter feauters just a copy-paste(nothing fancy or commented) from http://code.google.com/p/pyscripter/wiki/Features

  Full support for encoded Python source files

I bulive this is the best Python IDE you can find with or without paying for it, and if you got to this blog I belive that you know a thing or two about programming in Delphi, so if at any time you belive that you can modify something in PyScripter's source code to make it more productive then you know from where to get it.
