PEP 263 states that in Phase 2 the default encoding will be set to
ASCII. Although the PEP is marked final, this isn't actually
implemented. The warning about using non-ASCII characters started in
2.3. Does anyone think we shouldn't enforce the default being ASCII?
This means if an # -*- coding: ... -*- is not set and non-ASCII
characters are used, an error will be generated.
