I need some help getting viper to play nice with python-mode. How do I
get backspace to call py-electric-backspace when I am using viper as
well? When in insert mode C-h k on backspace gives 'viper-backward-char'
as the function it is mapped to. So I think I need to use a defadvice
around viper-backward-char. Something like ...

(defadvice viper-backward-char (around my-viper-py-backspace activate)
  (if (check if we are in python-mode)
      (py-electric-backspace someargument)

OK so I am not sure how to check what the buffer mode is. Use mode-name
or something better? And the argument to py-electric-backspace? Am I on
the right track or completely lost?

(eq major-mode 'python-mode)

someargument should probably be current-prefix-arg.

But looking at viper-keym.el, you probably ought to do this instead:

(add-hook 'python-mode-hook
          (lambda ()
            (define-key viper-vi-user-local-map [backspace]
