[New-bugs-announce] [issue31319] Add __main__.py to IDLE

New submission from Raymond Hettinger:

Currently, I start IDLE with:

  $ python -m idlelib.idle

It would be nice add __main__.py to simplify this to:

  $ python -m idlelib

And perhaps, more boldly rename the directory so that we get:

  $ python -m idle
