py32-Pillow should have a ucs4 variant and use the active_variants
PortGroup to ensure the same variants are active for python3.2 when
installing it. It should also automatically choose its default_variants
according to what an installed python3.2 (if any) has selected.

Or: We should get rid of non-ucs4 pythons in MacPorts in general. Feel
free to suggest that and Cc the maintainer of the python ports.
