Regarding http://bugs.python.org/issue4953#msg91444 POST with multipart/form-data encoding can use UTF-8, other stuff is restricted to ASCII!

From http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/interact/forms.html:
Note. The "get" method restricts form data set values to ASCII characters. Only the "post" method (with enctype="multipart/form-data") is specified to cover the entire [ISO10646] character set.

Hence cgi formdata can safely decode text fields using UTF-8 decoding (experimentally, that is the encoding used by Firefox to support the entire ISO10646 character set).
