Yonatan Zunger <zunger at humu.com> added the comment:

Or perhaps in an alternate phrasing: The sys.stdin.close behavior makes sense if quit is being used inside IDLE, but is very surprising from the perspective of the `code` module. (Really, even the SystemExit is surprising there, and should be documented!)

What if we added a stdin-preserving workaround to code.InteractiveConsole.interact, and added documentation of the SystemExit behavior to that module as well, but left _Quitter itself as-is?
