Sorry folks, I'd been up all night and messed that up completely.  I 
meant to say "Personally I am convinced that *IF* wxPython can't handle 
unicode *IT WILL BE* for the simple reason that it doesn't yet support 
Python 3 and we all know that Python 2 and unicode don't mix".  It would 
have been better still if I'd added right at the end "particularly 
well", with this being the impression I get from the bug tracker, with 
far fewer bugs being raised against Python 3 unicode that I'm aware of 
rather than Python 2.  I'm now crossing my fingers and legs and hoping 
that my impression is correct.
