It's probably a little more an issue than you think. Zope is a 
pretty large codebase and if nothing else, introducing unicode 
can affect a great many things. Its the sort of thing that needs 
to be done with a lot of thinking up front. Some work is being 
done on that, (esp. by Toby Dickenson) but 2.3 won't be the 
release where Python 2.0 is officially supported / required.
