I suppose there is a similar issue in Python 3 with bytes default.

Using unicode() in Python 2 will make the help string an Unicode string, and this can cause an issue with translated help string. And this will cause an issue with non-ASCII 8-bit strings.

Using repr() looks a right way of solving such issues, but this will change the output for 8-bit strings.
