Do I understand correctly then that there is no way to set a default
encoding per application? I mean, most of my users will live their
lives in latin1 land, but the application is meant to handle unicode
Phil Thompson suggest sneakily keeping a reference to setdefaultencoding
from sitecustomize.py, but I keep wondering why I would need to do
something so hackish.
