Sounds like a good idea. (Maybe idle can also be installed if Tk is found.) Go for it.
Will do. Is there anything else in Tools/ or Lib/ that could be usefully installed, such as tabnanny or whatever? I can't think of anything that would be really burningly important, so I'll just take care of pydoc.
Offhand, not -- idle and pydoc seem to be overwhelmingly more important to me than anything else...
Re: IDLE: Martin already contributed a Tools/idle/setup.py, but I'm not sure how to trigger it recursively. Perhaps a configure option --install-idle, which controls an idleinstall target in the Makefile. Making it only install if Tkinter is compiled seems icky; I don't see how to do that cleanly. Martin, any suggestions?
I have to admit that I don't know what IDLE's setup.py does... :-(
