[Python-ideas] Should iPython Notebook replace Idle

Basically agreeing with what's been said already: IPython is an application
that has Python (and some other things) as a dependency. So is IDLE. Python
itself should ideally not be bundled with any applications -- it's a
historical accident that IDLE is in the stdlib. Of course there should be a
basic command prompt, but I think that the existing one based on GNU
readline is fine for that purpose.
