I am the developer of the IdleX project (http://idlex.sourceforge.net). It's not a fork of IDLE, but just a collection of extensions that can be easily merged into IDLE.
I started the project because of the slow pace of IDLE development, especially when having several outstanding patches languishing in the bug tracker. With your help I'd like to push IDLE forward.
