To eliminate this confusion I'd propose either
1. Eliminating the separate IDLE versioning now that it's installed with
Python when Tcl/Tk is available.
2. Bringing its version in sync with Python 2.5.
I'm in favor of the latter, to handle the situation where a customized
IDLE is decoupled from Python.
