P4Python doesn't accept unicode type as the parameters

I installed sandbox/vc-refactoring 0.10dev code (as of 5/18/06) from svn, and P4Python 0.6 on Fedora Core 4. I followed the installation guide, but got errors telling P4Python.run() method doesn't accept unicode type as the parameter.
I whipped up a patch, which simply added a method to encode to ASCII, and the problem is fixed. The patch is not suitable to apply the real code, but it should give a hint for the fix. (For example, I could localize the encoding in a method and simply invoke it. )
I'm not sure why other users don't encounter the problem, but I guess it may be related to the fact that Fedora Core uses UTF-8 as the character encoding.
