Do i hate unicode or do i hate ascii comment 000

Oh, and just before anybody mentions it: both the email module and the pysqlite2 library will happily deliver bytestrings in other situations, so you can't just say to hell with it and all unicode. The email module will return non-utf-8 stuff as bytestrings and the pysqlite2 library will give a registered converter not the unicode string but the raw bytestring. For example if you register a (lambda s: s) as the converter, you will get bytestrings.
