[Idle-dev] script changed by another process

I like to use my favorite editor to make most changes to a script then switch to IDLE to run the program. The trouble is that idle does not detect that the file has been changed like most editors do. Usually a code editor will ask to reload the file. Idle will not reflect the change even if the file is opened again within the same window. The only way to get around the problem is to close the window and re-open the file in a new window. Are there plans to change to change this behavior?
