I agree with Roger that developing an extension elsewhere is the proper first step. I suspect that you will want to experiment with the exact behavior and interface. So I am closing this for now, though you can reopen later if there is a renewed proposal to change IDLE as distributed. But I would sooner incorporate some of the other extensions that have already been written and tested as part of IdleX.

Because I don't usually do the things that cause IDLE to crash, at least not while coding, and do use a fairly short code/F5-run test cycle, I am not sure I would need this much. On the other hand, a 5 or 10 minute timed backup might not be a bad idea.
