[New-bugs-announce] [issue13958] Comment _PyUnicode_FromId

Jim Jewett report at bugs.python.org
Mon Feb 6 22:08:01 CET 2012

New submission from Jim Jewett <jimjjewett at gmail.com>:

Add a comment explaining why _PyUnicode_FromId can (and should) assume ASCII-only identifiers.

	/* PEP3131 guarantees that all python-internal identifiers
	   are ASCII-only.  Violating this would break some supported
	   C compilers. */
