  Yeah, `''.join([u''])` will coerce the `str` to `unicode`, so we're fine on that front. The problem is only with `HGUNICODEPEDANTRY=1`, which will raise during implicit `str` <-> `unicode` coercion.
  One can reproduce a failure with `HGUNICODEPEDANTRY=1 ./run-tests.py -l test-record.t`.
  I doubt the test suite has been remotely close to passing with `HGUNICODEPEDANTRY` for possibly years. I'm not sure it is even worth keeping around, since Python 3 has very similar functionality for free. I dunno.
