Because for some reason cpython's configure script (in the now somewhat
ancient versions we're talking about) defaults to non-standard broken
Unicode support, and you have to explicitly override it if you want working
standard Unicode support.

I guess this made sense in like the 90s before people realized how unicode
was going to go down.

Same issue affects pyenv users (or used to, I think they might have just
fixed it [0]) and Enthought Canopy.
