[New-bugs-announce] [issue24760] IDLE settings dialog shouldn't be modal

New submission from Mark Roseman:

Is there any reason the IDLE settings dialog is modal?

(Actually while it is modal on Windows and Linux, on OS X you can actually switch back to the main window while the settings dialog is up, but you can't actually type etc. into it!)

While I could probably ask the same question about all the other modal dialogs, let's start here. :-)
