2.7.5 prereleases contain an example that adds some unicode support.
It basically shows a CharScanner subclass that can deal with UTF8 on
the input side, it's more a proof of concept than production code. I
guess that if the codegen changes are sufficient one could turn it
into something usable in production environment.

I requested feedback for it a while back with a snapshot release.
Since no feedback ever came on the subject of the unicode I did not do
anything further with it (I myself have no real stuff to test unicode
with, so I need some community involvement to help testing/fleshing it
out to something usable)

Since we're in the 2.7.5 prerelease track and 2.7.5 will go out any
moment the last configure/makefile tweaks are done, 2.7.5 will
probably not see good unicode support. 2.7.6 might if people provide
