Simply use the Options / Configure IDLE / Keys dialog to rebind Ctrl+k
to a new event you will define.  That will shadow Tk's kill binding, so
long as you end your method with 'return "break"' so the Ctrl-k won't
get passed to Tk.

Then implement a method in EditorWindow to select from the insertion
point to the end of the line and call EditorWindow.cut() (or copy that
code :) to get it into the clipboard.

Should work.  Send me a patch :-)
