IDLE extesion: catches long output to keep IDLE alive

Project Description
IDLE can hang if very long output is printed. To avoid this, the Squeezer
extensions catches any output longer than 80 lines of text (configurable) and
displays a rectangular box instead:

* Double-clicking the box will "expand" it - replace it with the original text
* Middle-clicking the box will copy the text to the clipboard/selection
* Right-clicking the box will open the text in a text viewer (e.g. Notepad,
platform dependant)

These instructions appear on the box itself, along with the length of the
"squeezed" text, making this extension very intuitive to use.
