I imagine those that would be in a position to improve idle don't see 
the point of it.  IMO, idle was never intended as a production 
development editor but more as an extensive example of gui programming 
with python.  Yes, you _can_ use it to edit, and there are nice python 
hooks, but I doubt that anyone with the skills to enhance idle actually 
uses idle.
