PKG-INFO encoding?

What should the encoding be for PKG-INFO? PEP 241, 301, 314, and 345 do not
specify.

I notice PKG-INFO must comply with an RFC that predates Unicode, and I
notice I get a traceback if I try to put a non-ascii character into my
Python 2.4.3 setup.py description. (I eventually decided to just
.encode('utf-8') in setup.py)

Thanks,

Daniel Holth
