That's the old literal syntax for Unicode strings. In 3.x, Unicode
strings are the default and the 'u' prefix is no longer required.

Anyway, it's doubtful that a module not specifically ported to Python
3.0+ would work unmodified, given the many backwards-incompatible
changes that took place. Unless there's a Python 3.0+ specific version
of the library, you're probably out of luck for now.
