The main thing the patch does is:
	modify the subprocess restart procedure so that it reloads 
whatever file, if any, was loaded when IDLE first started and looked for 
IDLESTARTUP then PYTHONSTARTUP environment variables.

In addition:
	a -q option is added for starting IDLE on the command line to 
mean "quiet", as with Emacs, e.g., to suppress loading of IDLESTARTUP or 
	The former effect of -s would now be the default, which is 
desirable so double-clicking an IDLE icon to start it will cause the 
startup file to run.
	-s is changed to take an argument that is an alternate startup 
file to use

I am a bit concerned about changing -s to have a different meaning. 
Perhaps it's better to leave -s as an option that is simplhy superfluous 
and use a different letter for the alternate startup.

How does that differ from issue5233? If this is a straight-forward port,
no additional issue is needed. Even if there are differences, please
attach the patch to the other issue.

Same changes to the code, but starting from a different base. I had 
assumed since IDLE/ was different in Python 2 and 3 that I 
needed to submit separate issues each with its own patch. I've 
attached the 3.1 patch to issue5233, so you can close issue5234. 
(Though doesn't it still make sense to have separate issues since it 
my happen that it gets integrated into Python 3 but not Python 2, and 
then what would the status of the issue be?)

Closing in favor of 5233, I see the fix being applied to both 2.7 and
3.1 if accepted.
