You're right: we should find a solution that's safe and supported.
I *think* the primary reason for overriding the home key behaviour was
not for the interactive shell, but to make it easier to edit code. Most
programmer's editors that do automatic indentation also let you use home
to move to the beginning of the text on a line, rather than the absolute
beginning of the line. I couldn't say for sure though: I'm new here.
I've proposed some changes to the ctrl-left, ctrl-right behaviour on
idle-dev that would also require custom handling of selection behaviour.
If it were to be decided that reimplementing the selection-handling was
worthwhile I would be willing to work on such a patch to redo the
selection-handling using only supported Tk features, but I get the
impression I'd need lots of help to get it tested with every possible
version of Tcl/Tk.
