I really can't seem to make sqlobject/pysqlite2 save my local Easter European characters.

I am a Windows-1250 user and I have sys.setdefaultencoding('dbcs') in my sitecustomize.

How can I save data like ""?
This is equivalent to '\x9a\xf0\xe8\xe6\x9e'

I'm using the latest version of sqlobject from SVN.
