Neither is the basic design and behavior of the new unicode 
implementation. On 3.2 narrow builds, including Windows

 >>> len('\U00010101')

With 3.3, the answer will be, properly, 1. I suspect that becoming 
compatible with that, and all that it implies for many other examples, 
will be the biggest hurdle for PyPy becoming compatible with 3.3.
