Ok, so to tally up the votes:

UTF-8: +1
PEP-8: +0.1

A real nail biter of a debate that one was.

The UTF-8 header wins. Update your IDEs, Randy chisel it in stone or 
whatever the hell it is you do over there in the Cretaceous period, and 
when 2013 comes around we can make them consistent across the board when 
we update the copyright.
