Use Python3, which, after renaming unichar to chr, changed it to always 
accept the full range of codepoints, even when that means returning a 
two-char string on narrow builds, like windows.
 >>> chr(0x10FFFF)
 >>> len(chr(0x10FFFF))

If OpenERP does not have a 3.x version, encourage them to make one to 
take advantage of the unicode improvements. Tell them the use case, that 
you want to use the full range, even on windows.

Or file a bug report requesting a workaround in the 2.x version.
