The WSGI 1.0 spec has always included Python 3 using unicode strings in the environ (decoded via ISO-8859-1, and limited to \x00-\xFF). In addition, the CherryPy and mod_wsgi teams are working to interoperably support a modified version of WSGI, in which the environ is true unicode for both Python 2 and 3. We hope these implementations become references from which a WSGI 1.1 spec can be written; since web-sig has not yet reached consensus on certain specification details, we are proceeding together with tools that allow users to get work done now.
