I really hope you do this, but note that it would be very helpful to have
guidelines and recommendations even for advanced, knowledgeable Python
developers.  I have participated in many discussions in various forums with
other Python developers where genuine differences of opinion or experience,
leads to different solutions.  It would be very helpful to point to a document
and say "here are the best practices for your [application|library] as
recommended by core Python experts in Unicode handling."
