It's on XP, and I'm using ActivePython 126.96.36.199.
Python doesn't like the above:
#locale.Error: unsupported locale setting
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, ('FR', 'UTF-8'))
Maybe it was introduced in more recent versions of Python?

If the regex library can only handle basic latin characters, I'll wait
until a script I'm running is done, and I'll upgrade to the 188.8.131.52 to
see how it goes.
