Well, if encoding-cookie is here to stay, I have only one wish: DeprecationWarning: Non-ASCII character '\xec', but no declared 

- please, add some more hint about encoding addition to the source. 
URL of the PEP will do. 

I still do not know what to do with user's of Python programs. 
Do we need to urge them to become Python programmers ;-)

And one more point. The Style Guide need to be upgraded accordingly,
banning multiple encodings in the source and telling to add
"coding: " hint the recommended way.
