Nova string encoding


I am investigating this bug:  https://bugs.launchpad.net/horizon/+bug/931667

I've started by passing various silly usernames into '$nova-manage create user' and immediately discovered that, for the user name at least, nova presumes that commandline args are in ascii rather than in utf-8. That seems wrong!

Is there a policy document anyplace describing what encodings should be used in Nova? If not, do we need one? Otherwise, anytime we pull something off of the commandline or out of the database, we don't really know what we're getting.
