[Pulp-list] Python Module Header

Not only are people using different headers, but some people are 
changing existing headers when they edit a file. It's not a technical 
problem but ends up being noise in the pull request.

The main point of contention seems to be the utf-8 encoding. I'm 
guessing the rationale there is that PEP-8 says not to do that for 
python 2. It's not buying us much outside of the copyright symbol in the 
header itself; there's nowhere in the code otherwise (that I've seen) 
that uses utf-8 characters.

I really don't care what decision we make. I'll update PyCharm to throw 
it in and not think about it. But let's decide on one so we don't have 
all the noise in pull requests of one developer changing what another 
initially put.

Cast your votes on what to use and we'll go with the majority.
