It merges cleanly into the current CVS.  By 'current', do you mean
some version of 2.4?

For this to be workable, IDLE development would have to be restricted
to the Python 2.4 feature set (or whatever is the current release).

I don't have any problem with that (so far as I know) but since I test
with Python 2.5 I might miss something.  Let me know if that's the
case and I'll try to fix it.

The easiest thing is for you to synch to idlelib.  I assume you are
running Windows; try TortiseCVS.  It's integrated with the Windows
file explorer and works like a charm.  It's faster than downloading
and executing an installer.
