[SUMMARY] Python IDEs, GUI builders and debuggers

Few weeks ago I asked about experiences and recommendations concerning
Python IDEs, especially for working with wxPython.
The following people replied and I thank them: Tal Einat, Udi Bauman,
Alon Levy, Avishay Cohen, Nimrod Steinbock, Meir Kriheli, Simon Robins.

The following is a summary of the collective wisdom.

1. To learn wxPython, the following resources are available:

* ShowMeDo.com has videos and tutorials.
* The wxPython demo is good.  In Debian, it is available from
wx2.6-examples package.
To use it, install the package, and then read the
file /usr/share/doc/wx2.6-examples/examples/README.examples.
After reading the file,
run /usr/share/doc/wx2.6-examples/examples/unpack_examples.sh to be able
to run the demo.
* The book "wxPython in action" is not great but nice and good enough to
get you going.
* "The wxPython tutorial" from http://zetcode.com/wxpython/ is good as
well.
* "The wxPython Linux Tutorial", another wxPython tutorial, exists in
http://wiki.wxpython.org/AnotherTutorial
* wxWidgets 2.8.4 reference is available from
http://docs.wxwidgets.org/2.8.4/wx_contents.html
* wxPython 2.8.7.1 reference is available from
http://www.wxpython.org/docs/api/wx-module.html

2. GUI Builders
