I disagree with this report being classified as release-critical - it is
*not* a regression over 3.0 (i.e. 3.0 already behaved in the same way).
That it is a regression relative to 2.x should not make it
release-critical - we can still fix such regressions in 3.2.

In addition, there is an easy work-around for applications that run into
the problem - just use utf-8 as the output encoding always:

py> e = ET.XML(b"<?xml version='1.0'
py> ET.tostring(e,encoding='utf-8')
