I believe the eventual goal should be that Python just defaults to UTF-8 for everything, and you have to jump through hoops to make anything else work.

We may getting closer to that being a reasonable option (Armin tells me that .Net defaults to UTF-8 for everything, even though other Windows tools still don't do that).

3.4 is probably still too soon, but it may be something to consider for 3.5.
