"Since the module predates unicode strings (it is in 1.5) and since the locale string is passed to a C function, 'string' in the doc can just as well be taken to mean ascii byte string only, as the code requires."

My only comment is that generally it doesn't seem reasonable to me that developer should need to investigate the history and implementation of a function in order to understand the documentation correctly.
