Since nobody else is answering (during the weekend), I'll pipe in.

IIRC these work since version 2.0.

They definitely work.

I haven't been keeping track; old versions of Reportlab only supported
Unicode/UTF-8 if you used TrueType fonts; the builtin Type-1 fonts
assumed windows-1252 or something like that.

Advanced scripts such as Arabic or Indian may not be supported, though;
again, I wasn't keeping track.

Rumor has it that Y1K brought us the Dark Ages because it took 400 years
to update all the software to four instead of three digits in the year.
