So why wouldn't Python work the same way? The rest of the world can
use non-ASCII modules names sparingly, and Japanese programmers can
avoid them diligently. Or learn to use them properly and teach each
other; if anybody has the experience of multiple encodings needed to
figure out a good way to use the native language in program
identifiers despite the encoding problem, my bet is it would be Japan.
