New submission from Mark Shoulson:

Python3.4 does not appear to know about the Unicode character U+1F441 EYE, 
although it does know about nearby characters which were added to Unicode at 
the same time:

>>> "\N{EYES}"   # This is character U+1F440
>>> "\N{NOSE}"   # This is U+1F442
>>> "\N{EYE}"
  File "<stdin>", line 1
SyntaxError: (unicode error) 'unicodeescape' codec can't decode bytes in 
position 0-6: unknown Unicode character name
>>> import unicodedata
>>> unicodedata.lookup("EYES")
>>> unicodedata.lookup("EYE")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
KeyError: "undefined character name 'EYE'"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: no such name
