What I meant is the desritption how you get a Python program wielded  
from different libraries to be Unicode-aware.
If Ruby works like that I won't be happy. Basically, some libraries  
accept Unicode in Python's 16bit form, some accept utf-8 bytestrings  
and some can only grok ASCII and will
throw up anyway. These are not going to work on Python 3000 as I  
understand.
