Hi Xah, That's a great question that is likely going to get very different answers from different people.  First, my list that is less specific to my fields of work... general:  ipython, cython, argparse, virtualenv, distribute.  I have never gotten into cython myself, but the resulting APIs that use it are definitely very good.

Now the list that includes stuff related to my work topics:  matplotlib, scipy/numpy, lxml, pandas, shapely, and gdal (not my favorite python API design, but the functionality is critical).

And finally a list of packages are amazing (and amazingly daunting)... django, twisted

+Kurt Schwehr super. Very expert recommendations.

do you mind if i blog it with links to all the packages?
np.  feel free to use it how ever you like.
