[wingide-users] Best environment for Python/C development

This is one of those horrible "What is the best ...?"  questions that of 
course have no unique answer.  But I'd appreciate some feedback based on 

I'm finally at the point where I need to implement some things in C since 
the Python implementations are *way* too slow.  I'd like to be able to 
debug my combined Python and C code as straightforwardly as possible.  I 
gather that this can be done via a route using wingstub, and I can 
probably figure out the details of that since I've used wingstub before to 
debug spawned processes.

My question is this:  Assuming development on and for Windows, what C 
development environment seems best for this sort of thing?  I've got (a) 
Borland V6 -- which I am starting to find pretty irritating since it 
want's to crash in some circumstances and I don't think much of its data 
display features, and (b) MS Visual .Net  (2003) which I've rather 
studiously avoided for a couple of years because its complexity somewhat 
bewilders me.

Any experience or thoughts on this?  Would something like CodeWarrier be a 
better choice?
