guys ?
use a proper python shell.

ipython is there for quite some time.
and i recently discovered bpython


this is where the fun starts

also help() works nicely on instances.

doctests also pretty much kick ass.

one of the problems with python and big projects is in my opinion that
it dynamically typed.
and refactoring stuff in python can get pretty awkward. type errors are
only detected at runtime.

so you need to have your test coverage in the 80% realm.

nose-tests helps you a bit with this stuff. including coverage analysis,
etc. http://somethingaboutorange.com/mrl/projects/nose/0.11.2/index.html
