That was the second part of my question. If a programmer writes down a string, 
and the source file encoding is declared to be utf-8, why then is the string 
still not encoded in utf-8 by default?
Why all the hassle of using u"..." instead of making it the default?
There is a lot of python source code I maintain, and it would simplify coding 
a lot if this could be made the default.
