	There's been some discussion on the String-SIG
(string-sig@python.org) of how to implement fairly transparent Unicode
support, and a fairly detailed proposal, but no one has done a testbed
implementation yet. An implementation is needed to allow experimenting
with the proposal to see what breaks, what needs to be fixed, etc.
Follow-ups to the String-SIG, please.
