python-ldap and encodings

I'm using python-ldap to create some entries on my openldap server.

The problem is that some of those entries have accented characters and 
unicode text in general.

I'm wondering if there is any example or documentation on how to add
or modify ldap objects whose values contains non-ascii characters,
such as accents, and so on. As far as I understand, those values
should be encoded using base64, but if I do that, I don't know how to
indicate in the modlist that this is the encoded value and not the
value itself.

Any help will be bery appreciated.
