When I start IDLE and the shell window appears, my first task is to press "Alt + T" to change from using tabs to spaces and then "Alt + U" to change from using 8 spaces to 4. This allows code pasted from the shell into an editor window or other IDE to not require reformatting since those settings seem to be common for Python code. If the defaults for these settings were to be exposed in IDLE's settings under the General tab (maybe near the new "Show line numbers in new windows" checkbox), would it be best to make that request here or to open a new bug with an enhancement suggestion?
