Hi Wassim,

This issue has been raised before. See http://bugs.python.org/issue9262

Guilherme Polo wrote a patch in 2008 for a tabbed interface using the 
(then new) Tk 8.5.  The patch would need updating to work with the 
current code.

Also, I wrote a tabbed interface extension for Tk8.4 which is now part 
of IdleX. See http://idlex.sourceforge.net/
(Note that this extension is a hack to work around the limitations of Tk 
8.4 and IDLE's extension interface.)

If you have questions about IDLE's internals, please ask.
