Don't bother responding to jmf - he's our resident Unicode troll. His
posts don't get through to me any more, except when someone responds
:) Not sure where they're getting blocked; probably at the news<->list
boundary.

You shouldn't have to restrict your username to ASCII. It's 2015, and
non-ASCII names should work everywhere. Anywhere they don't is a bug
to be fixed, and I'm confident the pip folks will treat this with the
respect it deserves.
