Comment (by davidsarah):

 I had assumed that {{{urllib.quote}}} was supposed to UTF-8-then-percent-
 encode Unicode strings, but
 [http://docs.python.org/library/urllib.html#urllib.quote it's not
 documented as doing so], so that was probably wishful thinking.

 This seems to be [http://bugs.python.org/issue1712522]. Apparently
 .quote-encode-the--unicode-strings-arguments-p19823144.html you have to
 convert to UTF-8 manually].

 Note that we have a {{{unicode_to_url}}} method in
 [source:src/allmydata/util/encodingutil.py] that should probably be used
 for this (or maybe we should add a {{{quote_unicode_url}}} method, if it
 turns out that we normally need to convert and percent-escape at the same
