So you have a clear preference for an ascii-only way. *YOU* *really*
want to know when a non-ascii identifier crosses your path.

I will rephrase your sentence this way.
"For those who DO care about ascii only identifiers, they will likely
have already an
environment variable or site.py modifcation that makes sure that all code ever
imported is pure ascii and are going to see the message they want to see..."

"and automatically every time they run Python"...
