Presently, the "Options" menu gets eliminated if IDLE runs as an OSX app. This behavior was introduced in 2006 in revision 654c380cf8b9. 

I guess that the original motivation for eliminating the Options menu since it usually only contained the "Configure IDLE" option, and the Lib/idlelib/macosxSupport.py code supports using the Preferences menu item to open the configuration dialog. (The only other item would be the Code Context toggle.)

Extensions that rely on the Options menu being present will not function properly, especially when the menu item involves a queried boolean variable for its checkmark status.
