    Hello folks,

    In the IDLE shell when pressing the key combos "Control+Up" and
    "Control+Down" the insertion cursor should jump to the nearest prompt
    (>>>) above or below it's current position respectively.

    Note: In the Editor Window of IDLE the current behavior is for the
    insertion cursor to jump to the next block (which is just fine for the
    Editing Source code!) HOWEVER in the shell we need a much more
    intelligent behavior.

    py> shell != editor
    True

    Not to be rude or anything - but why can't you get the latest IDLE
    source code, patch it, test it, see how you like it and if you feel
    it useful, share the patch and/or file a bug with the patch.

    cheers
