Anything that is not US-ASCII (including directed quotes, Euro sign,
em-dash, etc) might do it.  Probably you'll be OK with Latin-1
(guessing from your address you probably use French accented letters
and certain punctuation, eg, guillemots), but even that can't be
guaranteed for all internationalization settings.

What version is your Python?  'unicode' is a Python function, it seems
odd that it's not supported.
