Oh, good point, that should definitely be on the list of options
considered regardless of whether we go for it. I won't add it now
because I just switched to Windows to play games with my wife and my
emacs is on the other partition, but I'll add it later.

Does anyone know how literal_eval handles Unicode on py2?
