Are you sure the version of Python that is being used by mod_python is
the same as the version that is running from the shell? UTF-8 i one of
the built-in encodings, so I don't think you'll get exception unless
the encoding support isn't there at all.

FWIW I use this functionality all the time from the Publisher and it
works fine.
