Well, previously our answer has been "you have to understand unicode".  If we are going to change that, it probably needs a python-dev discussion.  But like I said, providing the *tools* to make it possible to easily do this, just not as a default, seems like mostly a no-brainer.  It's making it the default that is controversial, IMO.  (Call me -0.5 at this point in the discussion, as regards making it the default).
