4Suite has several objects, readers, that are used to convert HTML or XML to 
DOM nodes.  The base API for this is a fromStream method, which accepts any 
file-like object.  As a convenience, we also provide fromString, which uses 
cStringIO to wrap a string for fromStream.

The problem is that cStringIO doesn't accept a Unicode object (throws an 
exception), so there is no easy way to parse a unicode string to DOM.

Does anyone know of any version of or plans for cStringIO that would allow for 
Unicode support?
