> By the way, how popular are doctests these days?

Arguably, Sphinx has made them more popular than ever.  For me, they are essential.  And as long as doctest remains a non-deprecated module, we have to retain support.

For the record, I'm opposed to backporting this to 3.8 and 3.7.  If this PR ends-up killing our teaching workflow, we need something to fallback to.  Also, you don't want to immediately invalidate every video or written tutorial that uses IDLE for demonstrations.

I can't tell for sure because I'm having a hard time building with Tkinter support, so I can't easily try out the PR.
