We're working on exactly the same thing now :-)

I'll ask Chris to email the list once we get past it. I think the
problem is with the mixtures of different encodings (latin-1 and
UTF-8) in the Spanish Wikipedia and the way our code is handling this.
For some reason Python's print  (at times) wants to default to ascii,
even after we explicitly tell it to use UTF-8.
