Is there anything that can be done to make pexpect spawns send unicode lines?
In this example they are just middot characters, but this process
needs to be able to handle languages in other character sets.
>>> spokentext = u'Nation . Search the FOX Nation . czars \xb7 Health care \xb7 town halls \xb7 tea parties ...'
>>> p = pexpect.spawn('festival')
>>> p.expect('festival> ')
>>> p.sendline( spokentext )
