I consider the above PEP ready for review by the developers. Please comment.
The pep seems to dictate that the source by default must be read as latin-1:
""" Python will default to Latin-1 as standard encoding if no other encoding hints are given. """
Jython already reads the python source with the default java encoding which usually depends on the PCs locale.
If a small loophole could be added to that requirement, then the pep have my full support.
