[Twisted-web] help on handle... methods

it's of course nice to have an 'all and everything showing' IDE which 
even let's your refactor things throughout whole libraries with a few 
keystrokes but in Python I've never seen such a thing at work. (Please 
enlighten me if there is such a tool)

On the FOSS side you'll find Eclipse with Pydev (I'm currently working 
with it) on the top of my list, I certainly used SPE which is quite an 
effort on its own and very useable and also little tools like PyCrust. 
On the commercial side I have experience with the ill fated VisualPython 
(plugin for the MS family of dev tools), Komodo through all it's 
incarnations and I must confess I never worked with Wings IDE.

So for me it's definitely Eclipse with Pydev (FOSS edition) but as we 
learned way back in the seventies when we had line editors and dumb 
ASCII terminals: Never ever discuss sex, religion and editors!
