Next Wednesday is bug day - a good chance for a concerted operation on  
this. Chris, your description that the current implementation contravenes  
interface specification means that it is a bug. But no change should  
simply break existing applications. Can we come up with some tests (ZODB  
data and presumably client encodings) and a workaround to enable the  
fudge? I don't know how much non-ASCII you have but the "odd ?" might turn  
out to be quite a lot for some people.
