is it possible to somehow tell Python 2.7 to compile a code entered in the interactive session with the flag PyCF_SOURCE_IS_UTF8 set? I'm considering adding support for Python 2 in my package (https://github.com/Drekin/win-unicode-console) and I have run into the fact that when u"α" is entered in the interactive session, it results in u"\xce\xb1" rather than u"\u03b1". As this seems to be a highly specialized question, I'm asking it here.
