I would not say that. For the few function calls that do use
splitlist, you can apply another work-around:
def uni_splitlist(tk, message):
result = tk.splitlist(message.encode('utf-8'))
return [unicode(part,'utf-8') for part in result]
This does splitlist via UTF-8; it should work safely in all cases.

I think it is pretty weak. E.g. for Gtk, only Gtk 2.0 will support
Unicode throughout, and I don't know whether PyGtk has even cauhgt up.
PythonWin will work pretty well; Mark Hammond has spent much effort
into providing Unicode-safe APIs.
