Not sure what "properly" would be:

>>> s=unichr(0xD000)+unichr(0xD800)
>>> s
>>> len(s)

Do I even use them in the right order here? It can store them, and
reproduce what was stored. Apart for that, it does not special-case
for surrogates at all.


P.S. I really think Python should have used a 32-bit wide character
representation instead.
