Loading modules at startup in IDLE

    Does anyone know a way to automatically load modules in IDLE at
    startup?

    I can set %PYTHONSTARTUP% but this only works for the interactive
    prompt, not in IDLE. I tried doing the same thing with %IDLESTARTUP%
    but received no joy.

    What am I missing? Or has this capability been removed on 2.3?

    Thanks,

    Quoth the usage message (idle -h):

    -s run $IDLESTARTUP or $PYTHONSTARTUP before anything else
