[New-bugs-announce] [issue11230] "Full unicode import system" not in 3.2

New submission from John <jh45dev at gmail.com>:

A few months ago I read that in 3.2 it will be possible to import modules that are located on paths containing any unicode character. (more precisely, with chars not in the local code page)

After an hour or two trying to get this to work in 3.2rc3, I went looking for clues, and found these 2 messages in which Victor Stinner says this feature is delayed until Python 3.3:

Could you please make it clear in documentation and web pages, that this feature is not working yet. 

The Python 3.2 download page includes this:
"countless fixes regarding bytes/string issues; among them full support for a bytes environment (filenames, environment variables)"
and I guessed this must cover importing from any unicode path, as there was no mention that such importing had been abandoned for this version.
