I was reporting stock, as distributed 3.3b0.

Is something to run once or import in each app that wants unicode output? Either way, if it is possible to fix the console, why is it not distribute it with the fix?

>Terry, applications for non-programmers that want to emit Unicode on the console... so the IDLE shell isn't appropriate.

Someone just posted on python-list about a problem with that.

Hmm. Maybe IDLE should gain a batch-mode console window -- basically a stripped down version of the current shell -- a minimal auto-gui for apps.
