I think the bug report can be closed. Myself, I found it sufficient
that you can write normal \u escapes in strings, in particular as you
can also use them in raw strings:

>>> ur"Ha\u006Clo"

Perhaps not very intuitive, and perhaps even a bug (how do you put a
backslash in front of a "u" in a raw unicode string), but useful in
this context.
