I use IDLE every day. It does everything I want an IDE to do, it looks 
simple and doesn't waste screen real estate like some other IDEs do, it 
supports proportionally spaced fonts correctly, its syntax coloring is 
easy configurable (not a nightmare like some scintilla-based IDEs), and 
it's instantly available on any PC on which I install Python.

I'd like to keep it in the stdlib.
