The addition of tabbed windows to web browsers was a great advance that is now standard. For Windows, it eliminated the crowding of the taskbar. I suspect it made switching easier on all systems.

The addition of the same to IDLE would have similar benefits. I often have a shell and two edit windows open.

This would require, I believe, the use of ttk.Notebook, which requires tcl/tk 8.5+ or the Tile extension. Can this be made a requirement for IDLE in 3.2? Windows has 8.5 now. *nix users can add Tile if they have 8.4. I do not know the situation for Mac.
