You could have saved yourself some effort if you talked to us first. We
have pre-experimental 2.3 packages under development in our SVN.
However, did you port the runtime selectable IDLED method patch? This is

This is also an issue with 2.2

Can you send this to us please? Also, can you check that this isn't an
