When I teach Python, it is unreasonable to have to have every learner reconfigure IDLE away from usable defaults.   The squeezing is somewhat jarring and is almost never what we want in live demos.  It is rarely that I don't immediately have to unsqueeze the output.

Try this and watch it crawl:  

   >>> print(*range(500))

I don't know whether squeezing is the culprit, but something is causing 1970s print performance.
