Are you planning to un-defer the PEP, and remove the Deferral section?

The PEP proposes 5 'phases'. How does that mesh with 2 'steps'?

Gregory's message is helpful to me. The Idle startup needs to be documented (AFAIK only code now ) and modified. Internal error messages are 'print'ed to a text console that is normally not present on Windows (resulting in an exception message that cannot be displayed!).  I want to add a new startup 'service', as early as possible, to direct error messages to a gui message box or window. This means getting a tkinter event loop running as soon as possible so everything after can depend on that.  Perhaps it already is, perhaps not.
