I think there are too many place in Zope where we would have to convert
non-unicode strings into unicode for legacy applications. Therefore
changing Python's default encoding might be a legitimate choice for legacy
code. But I don't think that it would be a good idea to have some global
encoding to perform explicit conversions to unicode.
