Sure, but I can't find OS X listed as a prerequisite for using Python. So,
while I don't give a damn if those symbols are going to be supported by Python,
I don't think the plain ASCII version should be deprecated. There are too many
situations where it's still useful (coding across old terminals and whatnot).
