I fixed locale.setlocale() of Python 2.7 to accept Unicode string because it helps porting to Python 3...

But I think that the commit is just useless because we will have to wait until Python 2.7.3 is released, and if you want to support older Python versions, we will have to encode the locale explicitly to ASCII.

Anyway, you should move to Python 3 (3.2 or later if possible) if you want a better Unicode support.
