Quoting 'Just van Rossum' from a post on the OpenType mailing list:
Sadly, some of the funniest quotes from the Python Quotations Collection are
about Unicode (from http://www.amk.ca/quotations/python-quotes/ and beyond):
I never realized it before, but having looked that over I'm certain
I'd rather have my eyes burned out by zombies with flaming dung sticks
than work on a conscientious Unicode regex engine.

Unicode: everyone wants it, until they get it.
-- Barry Warsaw, 16 May 2000
I am becoming convinced that Unicode is a multi-national plot to take
over the minds of our most gifted (and/or most obsessive) programmers,
in pursuit of an elusive, unresolvable, and ultimately, undefinable goal.

Unicode is the first technology I have to deal with which makes me hope
I die before I really really really need to understand it fully.
