Please note that the official way to build Python without Unicode 
support is (see

./configure --disable-unicode

See for the most recent set of fixes 
that were supplied to make it work again in Python 2.7.4.

If the above doesn't work, it's a bug (as well) - and has been for
quite a few releases. Technically, --disable-unicode is mapped to 
--enable-unicode=no by configure.

I guess we'd need a buildbot to check whether --disable-unicode still
works, i.e. produces a Python version that compiles and passes
the basic tests.
