New python mode

Seems there’s a new kid in town.

Fabián Ezequiel Gallina has announced a new Emacs mode to, I hope, merge with the existing GNU Emacs mode (referred to as python.el) and possibly merge with the other Emacs mode out there (referred to as python-mode.el) and bring balance to the force.

This is great news. I have been meaning to write an article covering All Things Python in Emacs and if I can do that and only cover one mode that’ll make my life a whole lot easier. Currently the Emacs-Python community is way too fragmented due to license issues with python-mode and python.el not keeping up with the times.
