Extract of :

"RS 2008-07-09: Unicode out of BMP (> U+FFFF) requires a deeper rework of Tcl and Tk: we'd need 32 bit chars and/or surrogate pairs. UTF-8 at least can deal with 31-bit Unicodes by principle."

We might raise an error with better error message than ValueError('unsupported character'), but it's maybe overkill.
