[Just van Rossum]
All irony aside, I think you've nailed one of the problems spot on:
- most core Python developers seem to be too busy to read *anything* at all in c.l.py
- most people that care about the issues are not on python-dev
But they're not on c.l.py either, are they? I still read everything there, although that's gotten so time-consuming I rarely reply anymore. In any case, I've seen almost nothing useful about Unicode issues on c.l.py that wasn't also on Python-Dev; perhaps I missed something.
