Only 2.6 should be marked.  This is a feature request for an implicit 
conversion with a default encoding; it is not a bugfix.

FWIW, here's a reference to an earlier discussion:
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-list/2004-April/258630.html

Also, it is unpersuasive that md5() works with u'john'.  That is just 
an artifact of the 2.x series.  In 3.0, there is a more clear 
distinction between bytes and text.

Recommending that this be rejected and closed.  Without a universally 
accepted (not just with Python) implicit coding, there's no way to 
check MD5 checksums match for the same unicode text.
