Description

#18269 introduced the use of unicode_literals.

however their use in kwargs is not supported in versions of python < 2.6.5

see http://bugs.python.org/issue4978 and http://bugs.python.org/issue2646

This python version requirement needs to be documented in both the release notes, and wherever else appropriate (download page?)

Fixed #18601 -- Specified that Python minimum version is 2.6.5

This is due to a bug in previous Python 2.6 versions related to
unicode keyword arguments.
