I am not sure what exactly is not supported.  On my OSX system:

$ ./python.exe
Python 3.2b2+ ..

>>> import саша
>>> саша.foo
>>> from саша import foo
>>> foo

PEP 3131 does not distinguish between different types of identifiers,
so I think it assumes that non-ascii module names should be supported.

+1 on fixing any remaining bugs
