to get this thread back on track, does anyone have objections to Michael's

i.e. leave the data as 'raw' strings, and use codecs.utf_8_decode() when you
know that it is UTF-8 encoded.

> UNIX(LINUX)  is the only OS I know that has the internationalization (i18n) concept. Windows, VMS and many other less known OS, such as milkyway etc., only have the concept of localization (L10?).  This patch may be used for localization purpose as well, but its main target is the i18n type of applications.  Don't know about mac, but since it is mainly a personal system, my guess is that it is just like windows, L10 only.
