I want to checkin patch 1491759 "IDLE L&F on MacOSX". This makes the  
IDLE interface more palatable on OSX, although it still doesn't look  
very good due to issues with AquaTk. Unless someone tells me not to  
I'll check this in this weekend.

I also wouldn't mind if someone wants to review patch 1446489  
"zipfile: support for ZIP64". This add support for the ZIP64  
extensions to zipfile which makes it possible to create huge  
zipfiles. I'm using this at work to manage zipfiles that are over  
6GByte in size and contain over 50K files each. The patch includes  
documentation updates and new tests ;-)
