It looks to me (from skimming the code in cStringIO.c), that the code
is 8bit transparent.  I thought UTF-8 made all multi-byte values have
the 8th bit on.  So, if I'm using cStringIO I should be okay, if I'm
just using cStringIO to transport data, or maybe do readline or
similar.  Once I need to look at individual characters, I'm hosed.  But
if I want to collect the value ofa bunch of TEXT_NODE elements and
output them, wont' that work?
