This might come as a shock to you, but just because Python's native 
string type supports (for example) the Devanagari alphabet, that doesn't 
mean you are forced to use it in your code or application.

# Look ma, not a single Cyrillic or Greek or Tagalog letter in sight!
label = "something interesting"


Don't worry, the UN Language Police aren't going to force you at gunpoint 
to label your output in Khmer, Hiragana and Gujarati if you don't want to.
