Please reconsider this position.  For the 70% of the world whose
native language does not fit well into ISO 8859-1, apps developed in
Python 3 with no consideration for their needs are far more likely to
be easily adapted to their environments than those developed in Python

If you don't care about the rest of the world, fine, but the rest of
the world isn't going to care about you, and that matters to building
a Python project given that Indians, Chinese, and a smattering of
others account for a large fraction of the "pre-professional" labor we
get through GSoC.  They tend to be far more focused on mobile apps
than their mentors in my experience.
