The difference between our most illustrious resident unicode expert and 
rr is that the former has only said anything of use once, whereas the 
latter does know about tkinter/IDLE.  rr doesn't show up that often, the 
MIRUC has been spewing his mistruths for nearly two years and IMHO 
should have been booted into touch a long time ago.

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask 
what you can do for our language.
