Summary: Need to install IDLE

Initial Comment:
On Windows, IDLE is installed in the start menu, but on
Unix, it is not installed at all. It would be nice if
it was invokable simply by typing

  idle

in the shell.

Maybe. This would be a deviation from the past, so I'm sure
users will be surprised if 'make install' does that. For
people building binary distributions, there probably needs
to be a target that does the traditional install only, or
they need to invoke altinstall bininstall maninstall but not
idleinstall.

Maybe "make install" should do this then?

Notice that there is a working distutils configuration for
idle. Just do 'python setup.py install', and you get an idle
executable in your path.
