If possible, the recommended way is to write regular tests, because
doctests are regularly a headache. For things that do need doctests
with unicode strings in, write the example like '{u}"thestring" ', and
wrap it in py3compat.u_format() - or apply u_format as a decorator to
change a function's docstring.
