[Python-Dev] unicode Exception messages in py2.7

FWIW, the pure Python traceback.py module has a slightly different
(and saner) behavior:

>>> e = Exception(u"xx\u1234yy")
>>> traceback.print_exception(Exception, e, None)
Exception: xx\u1234yy

I'd suggest that the behavior of the two should be unified anyway.
The traceback module uses value.encode("ascii", "backslashreplace")
for any unicode object.

A bientôt,
