Mmh.  Indeed, I'm on UTF-8 as Gael suspected:

In [1]: print "áéíóú àèìòù äëïöü ñÑ çÇ(c)"
áéíóú àèìòù äëïöü ñÑ çÇ(c)

In [2]: sys.stdin.encoding
Out[2]: 'UTF-8'

In [3]: sys.stdout.encoding
Out[3]: 'UTF-8'


So we seem to be mishandling other encodings.  Suggestions from
unicode experts would be welcome.  I thought we'd fixed all the
remaining unicode issues, but apparently not.  Bummer...

Cheers,
