Is that really necessary? I've added 'editor with IDLE' functionality  
to IDLE on OSX and that just opens all files you open in the same  
copy of IDLE. IMHO that is more useful that starting several copies  
of IDLE when you open multiple files.

The disadvantage is that you can have only one shell window open.  
Your patch could be used to fix that (given your description of the  
patch, I haven't looked at the actual patch).
