I think that, because I've read the source, and
getpass.getpass() uses msvcrt.getch() on Windows, which
doesn't support anything at all above ASCII 255.

Also because I have a bug report pending against one of the
projects that I maintain from a user that is experiencing a
problem because of exactly this issue.

See:
https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1224877&group_id=69259&atid=523935

Also, I call shenanigans on your claim of successfully
inputting an umlaut-u into getpass.getpass(); this character
can *theoretically* be input, as it's below ASCII 255, but
in practice I can neither input it directly, nor COPY+PASTE
it from the clipboard on my WinXP SP2 with Python 2.4.1
installed.

Finally, regardless of whether "ü" works or not, other
characters that live solely in unicode, such as "¿" most
certainly do not (and never will) work (not even theoretically).
