Actually, if you're one of those cursed few with a non-US/Brit./Australian 
keyboard you may have to tinker a bit. The events for parenthesis in the 
config file are wired to the Shift-9 & 0 keys. My keyboard uses Shift-8 & 

Try changing these settings in your config file:
    Shift-9           = <<paren-open>>
    Shift-0           = <<paren-close>>

BTW, I never managed to put my changes in a separate file and use fallback 
to the default file. Not even idle.cfg in the distribution worked this way. 
I ended up copying the whole default.cfg file. I didn't try hard so this 
just might work for everyone else :-)
