Tim suggested that I meant that it *shouldn't* be too hard to change
it. He was wrong; I said what I meant. ;-)
It *should* be hard; if changing Python code were hard, Python
programmers would have a better shot at job security. Since it isn't,
changing IDLE won't be too hard, and no one will ever be able to keep
a job programming in Python.
Now, if that isn't what we love about Python, I don't know what is! ;-)
