Python+Emacs made easy with emacs-for-python

I don't know where this has been all my life but Gabriele Lanaro has put together a really easy to use package for adding lots of Python goodies to Emacs.

Just unzip the archive into ~/.emacs.d/ and add one line to your .emacs and your done (well, also remove all the now unnecessary random cargo-cult prior additions to your .emacs):

(load-file "~/.emacs.d/emacs-for-python/epy-init.el")

I had also previously installed a handful of Python/Emacs packages via Synaptic that may or may not be required to make it all work: python-rope, python-ropemacs, pyflakes.
