Should we really invest time to fix bugs related to astral (non-BMP) characters with rare codecs and error handlers (CJK codecs, xmlcharrefreplace error handler)? Python 3.3 is released and has a much better support of astral characters (in many places). I don't know for CJK codecs: Python 3.3 still uses the legacy Unicode API for CJK codecs and so depend on the wchar_t type (which is 16 bits on Windows). I just fixed Python 3.4 to use the new Unicode API (PEP 393), which always support astral characters support and don't depend on the size of the wchar_t type.

I'm not against fixing Python 2.7, I'm just not interested.
