[Python-Dev] getting the UCS-2 representation of a unicode object

Py_BuildValue() allows the usage of "u" or "u#" to convert UCS-2
data into a Python unicode object, however Py_ParseTuple() converts
a unicode object to UTF-16. Is this an error in the documentation
or why is there a asymmmetry in the API?
