Sorry, but no. I have always been very consistent
and attempted to be very concise. Eg. not mixing
Unicode Transformation Unit and byte.

I you wish an example of a confused discussion,
read the pep 393 (?) discussion and you will see
how people are discussing Unicode without being
able to use a unicode terminology.

At least the Py core developper, who wrote
(I do not remember if it was in one of the
lists or a private mail and I do not remember
exactly the phrasing)

"If you are not happy, switch to Py 2.7,
use Ruby or try to convince the BDFL" 

has, in my mind, a little bit more undersanding of
the situation.
