This works indeed. And thanks to Joe Fromm's hint (site.py) I don't have
to worry about it anymore.

Actually, I don't care as long as the encode and decode on the same
machine give me back the original value.

The actual input strings don't really contain unicode text values, but
rather binary values i get as result from calling win32.NetUserEnum.
The manual of SQLObject (great product btw) explains how you can easily
store binary data in a SQL table by encoding it when setting and
decoding it when getting the value. Tha is just what I was trying to do.
