Ah, thanks, I’ve been reading web-sig and was totally at a loss to
understand what a “native string” was.  Now I get it’s a character
string / string / str object / former unicode object.

FWIW, I’m glad to see concern for web-sig in python-dev, and messages
from Web people in python-dev.  Some threads going “they broke strings,
we can’t use the stdlib” were a bit alarming to me.
