> After the PR, can someone easily  reproduce the interactive prompt sessions in the tutorial and maindocs.

Yes, except with prompts (both >>> and ...) in the sidebar rather than inline.

> Will it look the same?

No, see above.

> Would they be able to build doctest examples in the IDLE shell?

That's a good thought. It should be rather simple to add a context menu option to "copy for doctest" which would add the prompts to the copied text.

(By the way, how popular are doctests these days? My impression is that they've completely fallen out of style, but I'm sure that could vary between different areas and industries.)
