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.
My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
