Michael: Why must the subprocess started by IDLE be in 32-bit mode if we'd run IDLE in 32-bit mode?  AFAIK there is no technical reason to do so.

Not that running IDLE in 32-bit mode is an option, it wouldn't fix the issue by itself unless we'd link Tkinter to Tk 8.4 and that would make it impossible to use Tkinter in 64-bit mode at all.

BTW. I'm -1 on using the X11 version of Tk, that would make IDLE look even less like a real Mac application. It would also require additional work to ensure that IDLE.app keeps working as expected.
