Simply because that is what it sounds like on this side of my monitor :-)

I'm seeing your request as asking for people to make special
considerations in their patches for your custom distribution. While I
don't have a problem with making Python more flexible to distro
maintainers, it seemed like you were approaching it from the "wrong"
angle. Like I said, making Unicode optional for the embedded space makes
sense; making it optional so it doesn't bloat your distro didn't :-)

Not a big deal... it is mostly a perception on my part. I also tend to
dislike things that hold development back.
