> Why adding ASCII strings, whereas you can add Latin1 (UCS1, U+0000-U+00FF)
> strings?

Reasons:
- most strings in pyc files are pure ASCII (it's like 99% in the stdlib)
- unmarshalling ASCII strings is faster: you can pass 127 to PyUnicode_New without scanning for non-ASCII chars

The aim here is to optimize the common cases. There is no reason to further complicate the code for rare cases.
