Well, I don't think we personally use any non-ascii characters, so we
can work around it, but it does break backwards compatibility.

We get an error when we use localize time and date strings, something
I expect is pretty common, i.e., you translate a string
"medium_date_format" with whatever translation tool you have, and then
pass that as a date format.

The translation tools will typically return unicode, and bam! it stops
working. So, if we can't properly support unicode, I'd actually prefer
that we cast the format string to string, perhaps with a deprecated
warning if we pass unicode?
