Our vendor hasn't been all that responsive about other things, so I'm
not too worried about the screams from users. Besides, essentially
everything we do that matters here is plain old ASCII. Many of our C++
libraries don't grok Unicode, so there's not much chance a wide
version of Python from our vendor would cause much problem.
