I'm confused.  The point of #5756 was that 3.x builds are broken because 
the installation of idle, pydoc, 2to3, and smtpd.py have been commented 
out in setup.py and thus these scripts are no longer being installed.  
Unless I'm missing something, that's the only way they were being 
installed in any form.  If nothing else, the change breaks the OSX 
installer build.

If they were removed deliberately (and are intended to be removed from 
2.7??), there needs to be some replacement and/or doc changes, no?
