The most common way to run a script in my usage is through the debugger. 
  I do this because if there's something I need to look at and change, I 
have all of the debugger tools ready to use.  I know that not everyone 
works this way, but I suggest that you consider it.

They are different tools and have different characteristics, most 
notably the python shell has an interactive prompt.
