One (rather roundabout) way to move towards this would be to port  
tkinter and IDLE to Tile (http://tktable.sourceforge.net/tile), which  
as an additional bonus would give IDLE a L&F that better integrates  
with the native L&F.

This would be a pretty large project though, and I'm not at all  
interested in doing this :-)
