Dockable would be nice but the split window is ok with me.  What I wish
is that Control-N in the interpreter window (or maybe some newly
assigned hotkey) would launch a Python editing window instead of a text
window.  Better still, have it already editing a temp file so that I can
immediately type code and hit F5 and run it, without the "Save as"

Also the "save on close" dialog buttons should say "save" and "don't
save" instead of "yes" and "no".  Lots of programs have dialogs like
that and the senses keep differing so it's easy to misread the prompt.
