it still doesn't work for console (but OK for files).
Trunk and release26-maint were recently changed (r71657, r71658) to use
the following logic, which differs from the code snippet you posted.
if (isinstance(msg, unicode) and
getattr(stream, 'encoding', None)):
stream.write(fs.decode(stream.encoding) % msg)
else:If the stream is stderr and you are passing a unicode msg, the else
stream.write(fs % msg)
branch will not be taken; as long as the stream has an encoding
attribute, it should output correctly.
