Choices:
1. Wait for the next 2.7 release, which should be within a month.
Easiest ;-). Will get you all other patches too.
2. Edit the files by hand, deleting lines marked - in the patch and 
adding lines marked +. Or change lines so they match the + lines. 
Harder, but you get the one change now instead of later.
3. Download and install TortoiseHG, turn your python installation (or 
just the idlelib directory) into a repository, apply the patch (or an 
edited version thereof), and perhaps delete the repository stuff. I 
would only do this if you want to learn to use (Tortoise)HG anyway, 
perhaps so you can apply other patches too, without waiting.
