   As I get more and more into programming, I get the sense that "real"
   programmers use emacs or vi, or some other editor that from my
   perspective, seems arcane and impenetrable compared to something
   simple like IDLE that comes with Python, or Scite, for example.

   Can anyone provide a cogent explanation for why I should take the time
   to climb that learning curve? What are the benefits, as you see them?

real programmers use their brain.
real programmers program their brain.
often, real programmers' brain-programming program is emacs.
