         Well, since you asked for it, here goes :)

         In addition to doc-browsing via pydoc, it would be
         cool to get IDE support for:

             - tooltips for docstrings and function args
               (as in PyCrust)
             - running PyChecker to check code
             - running unittest or other test suite
             - running in Python profiling mode and being
               able to browse the profile
             - running a code coverage tool (e.g., the
               Tools/scripts/ script in recent
               Python releases)
             - integration with CVS or other revision control system

          Also, it would be good to expose all preferences
          in the GUI rather than having to hand-edit the
          preferences file and re-start Wing. Why is this
          necessary right now? At least, it would be good to
          get a complete commented list of preferences
          in the user's preference file so that you can
          uncomment and edit the ones you want to change.
