Well, there is Idle :-)  The menu item "Tools -> General Controls -> 
IDLE" will bring up an Idle window.

I usually use Idle for testing out snippets of code but prefer to edit 
scripts outside of Chimera.  Keeping the "Open File" dialog up by 
checking the "Keep dialog up after Open" box (above the Close button) 
helps a lot.  The file you last opened remains selected, so you can 
repeatedly edit your script and hit the Open button to reload it.  All a 
matter of preference...
