Raw Unicode docstring

Hello,

how does one write a raw unicode docstring? If I have backslashes in
the docstring, I must tuck an 'r' in front of it, like this:
r"""This is a raw docstring."""

If I have foreign letters in the docstring, I must tuck a 'u' in front
of it, like this:
u"""This is a Unicode docstring."""

What if I have foreign characters *and* backslashes in my docstring?
How to write the docstring then?
ru"""My raw unicode docstring."""
or
ur"""My unicode docstring."""

Please answer my question, although it may sound like a noobish one. Thanks.
