I also use IPython from a terminal for interactive work, and I'm 
completely satisfied. However, from time to time debugging directely 
from emacs could be usefull.

I'll give python-mode.el (4.68 or above) a try, hoping not to 
experience too many problems. I've also looked at python.el, but it 
claims to work only with emacs v22 and I'm still at emacs v21. :-(
