Please, if possible, avoid creating yet another fork of IDLE!

History has shown that it is very difficult to merge features from a fork
back into IDLE.

Also, IDLE isn't getting too much developer attention as it is (except for
Roger and Nick who have been doing a great job recently!), so it would be
great to have your efforts contribute to IDLE directly, in coordination
with the few current developers.
