New submission from STINNER Victor <victor.stinner at haypocalc.com>:

Python3 doc tells that UTF-16-LE and UTF-16-BE only support BMP characters. What? I think that it is wrong.

It was maybe wrong with Python2 and narrow build (unichr() only supports BMP characters), but it is no more true in Python3.
