Ok, students are at grade 12 (some at 13 after a failure in another cursus).

Oups, students are mainly beginners (but some algorithmic is being 
introduced in their previous pre-bachelor schools years, so we may see more

The choice of IDLE is related to its standard installation with Python (at

But, would appreciate some enhancements as seen in discussions (ex. typical 
example is line numbering).
