I would have agreed 100% with you a few months ago.  But, I have the
current pro version to use on my workstation, and it is not very slow
and clunky anymore.  With that said, though, I like the simple
approach of Wing.  For example, I'm happy to run the PyLint plugin
after coding for a bit, and not have the inline checking (though the
inline checking is nice.)

But, there are some core things that Wing just simple must do to keep
up with PyCharm, I think.  I listed them.
