that's, unfortunately, a bit too common on this list.

(as the author of Python's Unicode type and cElementTree, I especially 
like arguments along the lines of "using separate buffers to hold the 
actual character data is not feasible" and "that narrow storage would 
have any advantages over wide storage is far from proven".  nice try, 
guys ;-)
