Re:  lightweight editing: you can configure erring for either emacs or vi mode.  The emulation is incomplete, but sufficiently useful.  For example, in vi mode, search is familiar.

Beyond light editing, you can configure external editors to open files (right click on file).  You can also simply have your project files simultaneously open in the editor of your choice (e.g.  teaxtmate), as wing will watch files for changes, and simply reload (you have to remember to actually write the files changed externally).

Hope that gives some insight.

Hi scott,
I work on linux mostly and sometimes on windows.
and I am a wing aficionado for years. I really, really like it.

But, I do NOT use it for my day to day python editing.
For this I have my editor that can sing and dance and produce baked 
potatoes in no time.

However when it comes to heavy python lifting, I use wing. And as I 
said, I REALLY like it.
