Python correctly throws a unicode error here, directing the user towards the fact that this is an issue specifically with the unicode escaping.

>>> "\u"
  File "<stdin>", line 1
SyntaxError: (unicode error) 'unicodeescape' codec can't decode bytes in position 0-1: truncated \uXXXX escape

The documentation also states that "Any Unicode character can be encoded this way. Exactly eight hex digits are required."[0].

Propose closing this as Won't Fix.
