Yes, but on the other side, "you" (core developers) have reintroduced
messs of the unicode literal, now *assume* it (logiccally).

If the core developers have introduced rb'' or br' (Py2)' because they
know if the have to type "rb" or "br" (me too), what a beginner should
thing about "ur" and "ru"?

Finally, the ultimate argument: what it is Python 3 supposed to be?
A Python 2 derivative for lazy (ascii) programmers or an appealing
clean and coherent language?
