[New-bugs-announce] [issue22703] Idle Code Context: separate changing current and future editors

New submission from Terry J. Reedy:

#17535, msg225416, 2014-08-16 17:18 describes the current double behavior of Options / Code context.  It toggles the code-context state of both the current editor and the default for future editors.  The two toggles can be in opposite directions.  The check mark absent or present somewhat surprisingly indicates the initial state of future windows, not of the current window.

The consensus seemed to be that we should change to having Code Context toggle the current window only, with the checkmark indicating its current state.  The default for future windows will be left to the extension configuration, which will be easy to change with the new dialog, #3068.
