Is there a good technical explanation for why Zope doesn't allow
non-ASCII characters in URLs?

I'd like to be able to let URLs work like this example from Wikipedia:


When I try adding an object with ID "メインページ" in Zope 2, I get
the following error message:

Error Type: BadRequest
Error Value: The id
" contains characters illegal in URLs.

Is there a fundamental reason (ie. Python objects can only be ASCII) or
is it simply bugs that need to be fixed?

As Paul indicated: the issue dates back to the times when there was only
ASCII in the URL world. Especially object IDs have to be ascii - well...Zope
came from US :-)
