I have used the Python mode in XEmacs for years, and I've been very happy with it. However, after seeing Carlos' original posting re: jython for jEdit, I had a look and was *very* impressed. In fact I now use jEdit as my primary development tool. 

I am doing more Java than [jp]ython, but unlike many Java IDE's, jEdit has a general purpose text editor at it's core, and it supports many programming languages. It is also very easy to extend - using languages that I know (as opposed to elisp, which I don't ;-)
