The patch applied leaves 'name = IDLE New' alone so older IDLEs can use that instead of IDLE Classic as an alternative to IDLE Dark.  I will open an issue to revise IDLE New slightly.  I also added type='bool' when getting 'default' (the lack thereof lead to IDLE Dark being returned as a custom theme.

After working with this, I like the idea of present users with a single list of themes to select, instead of two buttons and two drop-down lists.

I tested fairly thoroughly, starting with no user [Theme] section.  When I added a print to debug idleConf.CurrentTheme, it was called 13 times on startup, with only Shell opened.
