I don't think this is right. The Unicode support in Python 2 isn't as 
good as in Python 3, but it is still pretty good. You just have to 
remember to use the u prefix on your strings.

If it is true that wxPython cannot handle Unicode -- and I see no 
evidence that this is correct -- then it is due to the underlying wx* 
library, not Python 2.
