That's too bad... I thought it was very useful.

If it were a patch I would have, but it is (was) just a hack, and it was
applied to a build on centos5 (it may work fine on Fedora for all I
know, sorry to not have been more precise about this):

and to work it needs something like this, that reenables changing he
default unicode python encoding at runtime, somewhere in the python
search path:

--------
#
# sitecustomize.py - saving a useful function.
# so that apps can change the default encoding
# (used by repoview 0.6.1)
#

import sys

sys.setappdefaultencoding = sys.setdefaultencoding
--------

Or perhaps it could be something that looks up the locale and changes
things accordingly (the default behavior I was seeing was that strings
were being decoded as 'ascii' and repoview would crash when hitting
characters > 128). 

I'm sure there's a better way of doing the same thing...
