Since IDLE is not really library code, but an application, one could 
argue that the no new feature rule should not necessarily apply. But I 
personally would only make that argument for 3.2. I will ask on pydev 
when there is code to argue over.

I no no interest at present in backporting to 2.7. One reasone is that 
once 3.2 is out, I think most new Python programmers should start with that.
