I agree with Raymond, at least for now.  I would expect the string argument to Fraction to be quoted legal Python code.  Without a lot of thought and discussion leading to a change in python design with respect to unicode and operators, this limits  '/' to ascii '/'.

I believe that we accept non-ascii digits in at least some places, but operators are a different case.
