[Python-Dev] PEP 263 in the works (Non-ASCII characters in test_pep277.py

Now that I can edit UTF-8 directly, I find a "feature" made
possible by the PEP 263 support of Python 2.3 rather
Let's say I edit a file testencoding.py in XEmacs with UTF-8
# -*- coding: utf-8; -*-
# comment =E4=F6=FC
s =3D "=E4=F6=FC"
u =3D u"=E4=F6=FC"
print 'works !'
With Python 2.3 this prints:
I would have expected that s turns out as "=E4=F6=FC" using print,
since that's how I wrote it in the source file.
This suggests to me that mixing string and Unicode literals
using non-ASCII characters in a single file should probably
