I reported the issue in 2012, and it's not nice to see that in four years
the flagship editor of Python in all platforms I know is still something I
have to avoid. I am not writing this mail to vent; I'm asking: what can we
do, and through which channels we can go, for a quick solution? I am
unfamiliar with the structure of issue resolving in Python, maybe Ned can

Thank you all
