It is customary to attribute quotes to their source. This is from 2.x
Lib/idlelib/PyParse.py. The file was committed (and probably written)
by David Scherer 2000-08-15. Edits for unicode, including the above,
were committed (and perhaps written) by Kurt B. Kaiser on 2001-07-13.
I doubt GvR ever saw this code. I expect KBK has changed opinions with
respect to unicode in 13 years, as has most everyone else.
