The SQLAlchemy plugin is not tied to ASCII or Unicode, and you can use it 
getting any warning as long as you pass the username/password properly encoded.

I cannot apply that patch because some people use ASCII, and also the right 
place to 
fix this is the repoze.who identifier plugin that you are using, which is not 
repoze.who the username/password properly.

Are you using a built-in repoze.who identifier plugin? Or is it maintained by a 
3rd party? 

If it's a homegrown identifier, you may want to have a look at the code for 
friendlyform which gives repoze.who the credentials with the right charset:

Please use the mailing list if you need help to fix the identifier:
