very good idea, as I'am starter myself (started 2 weeks ago),
I spent a few days typing my first "Python characters".
That was until I discovered the Enthought-edition (worth to mention on 
your page).
Secondly, you mention SPE, which crashed 2 times in 5 minutes :-(
So I switched to PyScripter (which crashes when doing plots in debug mode),
but I can live with that ;-)

btw I know it's a wiki, but I feel myself a to newbie.
