Nevertheless, here's a "Me, too". I've just been writing some PyPI
interrogation scripts, and it's absolutely awful having to deal with
random encoding errors in the output. Being able to just print
*anything* is a HUGE benefit. This is how sys.stdout should behave -
presumably the Unix guys are now all rolling their eyes and saying
"but it does - just use a proper OS" :-)

Enlightened-ly y'rs,
