I would happily contribute $200 towards project for out-of-box python
completion and structure parsing. Semantic and cedet, while great, are
slow for large projects and make emacs perceptively slow.

This is another pet peeve. Especially for writing html with css,
javascript and mako.  nxhtml-mode is pretty cool, but again makes
emacs slow. I'd like some support in core emacs, which would be
hopefully faster.
