I'm a python IDLE user, and I've got a simple feature request.  I don't know
what you use to implement the text editor, but one thing it would be really
nice to do is hold the ALT key, click and drag, and be able to select a
rectangle of text.  If that doesn't make any sense, I attached an image
depicting what I'm talking about.  Since Python is a tab based language, it
only makes sense that I would be able to select code this way.  Anyway, just
thought I would share.
