 I'm pretty sure this applies to all extension modules that do anything
 with strings. Variants aren't a good fit for this problem because having a
 particular variant selected in the python27 port doesn't force that
 variant to be selected in its dependents, nor vice versa. Making
 UCS4-flavoured subports of python27 and all ports that install extension
 modules would be a lot more trouble than it's worth IMO. I wouldn't go so
 far as to remove the variant from python27 entirely as some have
 suggested, but putting a big warning on it makes sense.
