I am ready flebber but we have a problem. An old IDLE fork project
still exists and if i start a new one then folks will probably get
confused. We don't need more multiplicity.

So, I am asking now that the owners of IDLE fork step forth and offer
the site to me or someone who would be interested in restarting the
fork with new goals of cleaning up the horrible code base and ambition
to maybe do more. We don't want to bloat IDLE but we do want to clean
it up.

I don't care who *that* person is as long as *they* are willing to
push IDLE forward. I would be honored to accept the reigns and lead OR
follow someone else's lead. But we need to receive the old idlefork or
have them delete the old idle fork as too much confusion will spread
with when two idleforks exists.

Here is a link to the old idle fork:
