False. Idle opens any number of documents at the same time just fine (in different
windows - rather than tabs).
While I don't see the use case for the possibility of having multiple file dialogs open
at the same time, it doesn't really hurt either does it?

Not sure what you mean. What's the "shortcut pane"?
I do notice that my Idle from Python 3.4.1 does indeed not use a native file dialog, it
has a weird icon bar at the left side (win xp era layout?) My idle from 2.7.6 (haven't
upgraded yet) uses the native explorer dialog. That is odd indeed. Maybe there's a
reason for it, maybe it's a bug, I don't know.
