My problem is with IDLE on Windows. When I try to type Bangla directly into 
the IDLE window I only get '?' characters, and repr() fails with a 
UnicodeDecodeError. I expect, though, that that's because of my specific 
installation / Windows issues, as it works fine on Fedora 10...

I have no problems either -- my issues are with IDLE, and only on Windows.
