> How do [python-mode.el and python.el] compare?
This may be irrelevant to you, and may be wrong, but my impression is that
1 the difference between the two that I find most significant is,
python-mode.el is under much more active development than python.el.
2 as you note, currently (hopefully not much longer), python.el is
officially supported by GNU and python-mode.el is not. My impression
regarding that (which again could be horribly wrong) is, this is a
remnant of the "Emacs Schism" (see the Emacs wiki for more info),
and the fact that python-mode.el originally developed on XEmacs.
