Are there any plans to add support for builtins then? Or is there a 
plug-in that does this that some clever individual has created? I've 
noticed this with other Python IDE's too and wondered why IDLE seems to 
be the only popular one that includes builtin hightlighting. I can't be 
the only one who cares about accidentally shadowing a builtin.
