Is it really?  You already had to type 'import', presumably if you can think in Python you can think in ASCII.

(After my experiences with namespace crowding in Twisted, I'm inclined to suggest something more like "import m_07117FE4A1EBD544965DC19573183DA2 as café" - then I never need to worry about "café2" looking ugly or "cafe" being incompatible :).)
