Something I forgot to mention:  IDLE on the Mac appears NOT to have
any color coding of key words.  That's a pity, as I consider colorized
code a major enchancement to code readability and primary "selling
point" of IDLE.  

If color-coding is an option, I failed to see where to turn it on.  
Maybe I'll write to the MacPython guy and ask him about this (just 
to get a sense of what's preventing this feature from migrating to 
the Mac platform (Linux IDLE is colorized)).
