IDLE's involvement with cut, copy, and paste is to tell the tcl/tk GUI framework what keys to associate with the operations. The keys depend on the OS-specific defaults or the keyset chosen by the user.  The actual operation on the Text widget is carried out by tk, in response to events it gets from the OS.

IME = Input Method Editor.  I just watched ^C and ^V work on Windows with Window's Japanese IME.  I properly closed this as an IDLE issue.  Serhiy, do you know anything about Windows' built-in Cyrillic IMEs and control key combinations?
