Looking the file through the web browser, I see:

  Version: $Revision$
  Last-Modified: $Date$

So, SVN is touching that. I guess that that is actually the idea, but
is breaking thing for us-non-7bits-speakers, :)

I see two solutions to this:

- Find a way to specify something in the original PEP file so SVN
translates always the dates in English.

- Touch the .py and adapt them to support this characters.

I prefer point 2.

What do you think? (if it's ok, I'll add the "coding" line in the
files where is needed).
