I'm just wondering why DrPython has its own FileDialog (as the default), rather than using wx's? It just feels pretty "unnatural", in comparison to Windows/GTK's file browsers, and doesn't do things like display my system bookmarked folder.

Great program, though! :)

The best editor I found so far for Python, script capable, with an evolving plugins collection, backed with super-fast bug fixing, and of course 100% Python/wxPython, hence running on any platform.
