NetBeans Screenshot of the Week #32: Python Import Management

We're about to release an early access release of Python support for NetBeans. We have ambitious goals for the Python support: NetBeans should be the best IDE for Python development, bar none! Over the next couple of weeks I'll post screenshots of a bunch of editor related features for Python. Today I'll start with a feature near and dear to my heart: Import Management. I used to be a die hard XEmacs user. When I started coding in Java, I continued using emacs for a couple of years. And the feature which finally made me abandon emacs for a Java IDE? You guessed it -- import management. If I wanted to use for example the List class, I could just press a keystroke to choose which List class I had in mind, and the import statement was added for it at the top of the file while I could continue working in the middle of the file somewhere.
