Although I'm not German, I'm rather pleased by this. Nevertheless I don't think we actually need to do anything yet.

I think it is more important that Python follows the standard Unicode behaviour. If and when Unicode recommend that 'ß'.upper() returns '\N{LATIN CAPITAL LETTER SHARP S}' then we should follow, until then we should treat it as no different from any other locale-specific difference. For example, 'i'.upper() returns 'I' instead of 'İ' as you would expect if you are Turkish.
