IDLE has an icon that is, appropriately, a white page with text overlaid with the Python logo on lower right. (Module docs uses the same icon.) For a long time, this has been used everywhere for IDLE -- start menu, desktop, taskbar.
In the latest 3.2.3rc2 and 3.3.0a2 releases, the Windows 7 taskbar icon for IDLE is the red Tk icon. If IDLE is pinned to the taskbar, the icon changes to the command-prompt + logo python-pythonw icon. This seems to be new in these releases and is confusing and annoying. Otherwise, the IDLE icon is as it was.
