[Grok-dev] Tests, Unicode and Fileencoding

starting to use tests while developing my app, I discovered that you  
can only use unicode strings in tests, when you specified the file  
encoding of the testfile.

So my zoo.txt starts with:


# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

  The Online Game GrokZoo



Is that the intended behaviour?

What is the default encoding /bin/test expects? ASCII? So why ASCII?

Wouldn't utf-8 be better, since we claim to have unicode everywhere  
in Zope?
