Closed #37614 in favor of this.  

We now have only Python with FSR and mostly only tcl 8.6 to worry about.  But I presume the Windows clipboard still uses uft-16le.  Experimenting with pasting 𐒢 or '𐒢', I usually get the 'ed' message as before, but with the quoted astral, IDLE somethings hangs.  If I wait before trying to close, I get a message from Windows about waiting or closing.

Currently, an attempt to print an astral char, as opposed to paste, results in
>>> print('\U00011111')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>
UnicodeEncodeError: 'UCS-2' codec can't encode character '\U00011111' in position 0: Non-BMP character not supported in Tk
Improving this is a separate issue, as is editing a .py file with an astral char in the name or test.
