Hi Monte,

I wrote an extension last year that does that, but it still needs some 
work. You can find the code at: 

Just add the appropriate entry to config-extensions.def, as found in the 
beginning of the code.

The extension provides a pane with line numbers. Clicking on the pane 
brings up the "Goto" dialog box. Also, IDLE already has a built-in 
keyboard shortcut for bringing up the "Goto" box. I have it set to Alt-G.
