For 2.7.12 I've committed changes to the Mac/IDLE Makefile so that it now edits the defaults files in place on install just like the 3.x Makefiles do.  Framework installs of IDLE 2.7 on OS X no longer output startup warnings and, since the defaults are now in sync, also now properly use the newer default font.  The whole approach is less than ideal since the OS X tailoring is still hidden away in the Mac Makefiles rather than in idlelib code.  Issue20580 addresses the broader issue of platform-specific configuration files for IDLE.
