Other packages don't seem to have issues and since it seems upstream
wants to stick to internal unicode I wonder if we should change calypso?
If we do so we could probably do the switch to python3 altogether.

I have looking into this on my TODO list (and it slowly bubbles up) but
if you can have a look sooner that's great. I'll ping once I start
working on it.
