As a member of this silent majority - we care less about IDLEs code
quality than all the others that did actually care enough to even
reply to you.

Now stop your annoying trolling and either start working on your IDLE
fork or shut up. Nobody else who agrees with you (there might be
someone out there) has been ever been motivated enough to initiate
this work by themselves, so unless YOU start it - it probably is never
going to happen.

Once it is underway you might attract some other people interested in
helping to refactor or recode IDLE - but you won't know that unless
you start work on it.

But I think we all know exactly what you are actually going to keep
doing though.
