If people decide to delay their Py3k migrations until they can drop 2.5
support, they're quite free to do so. The only reason for porting right now
is to support 3.2, thus making a future reintroduction of u'' useless.
Those that delay their ports can use the forward compatibility in 2.6.

Having just purged so much cruft from the language, pleas to add some back
permanently for a problem that is going to fade from significance within
the next couple of years are unlikely to get very far.
