I would say that this issue can be marked as fixed once the user can specify the log format encoding (utf-8, ansii, etc) when invoking twistd.
Personally, I'd like to see unicode support. Currently, the default encoding is ansii, even if the terminal supports utf-8, and when you try to print a unicode charactor: <unicode instance at 0x9108a10 with str error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/twisted/python/reflect.py", line 546, in _safeFormat
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\u0411' in position 0: ordinal not in range(128)
I should point out the two similar issues: http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/3368 http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/1990 The fix for 1990 will still be an ansii encoded file, with unicode escape sequences. The fix has also not been included in the core repository.
