    It's good to see that Python now supports full Unicode,
    but I don't think it goes back as far as 2.2. The laptop
    I'm typing on has Python 2.3.3 installed and the value of
    sys.maxunicode is 65535. I guess its possible that this
    is a crippled build, but I remember testing Python not
    that long ago and not getting full Unicode support.

    Incidentally, although Tcl as distributed only supports the
    BMP, it can be compiled with full Unicode support, which
    seems to work alright. Unfortunately, the associated graphics
    library, Tk, does not yet support Unicode beyond the BMP.
