I always tell them I'll leave it. There is fallout, but there's fallout the
other way too.

Since python is
a scripting language I would expect to be able to accomplish that just
copying llines from the script and pasting them onto a python terminal
shell. But, regardless of which editor I use, python interpreter prints
out plenty of "indentation error " messages.

Your editor, editor toolkit, clipboard, or terminal toolkit may be munging
this[1]. It's often not easy to copy/paste tabs. You might try using a
python debugger, if such a thing exists, and have it read the file, but
step/next/continue between lines based on your input.

[1] For example, best I can tell, konsole never provides tabs to the
selection. I know cat, vim, etc. are printing them to the terminal, but
taking that output and pasting it anywhere else results in the tabs being
turned into spaces.
