FWIW, a few months ago, I reported that File New or File Open in IDLE
would crash Python as a result of the check-in implementing PEP 342.
Now, with AST checked-in, IDLE has started working again.  Given the
reconfirmation, I recommend that the 342 patch be regarded as suspect
and not be restored until the fault is found and repaired.
