Related issue #22893 is about __future__ statements in startup code having effect on future interactive input in the same way as it does with Python itself. I think a pure Shell start/restart (cntl-F6) should be handled separately from a restart that is a side-effect of running an editor file.  There is a separate proposal to specify an individual file's startup condition (sys.args + STARTUP file).  For Shell restart, a possible reason might be to get rid of the effect of a STARTUP file.  Since ^F6 is rarely used (I think), asking whether to include the STARTUP might not be too intrusive.

I think default behaviors should follow Python, though we can add more.  On the other hand, Python has startup options not currently available with Idle.
