[GRASS-dev] g.message and unicode in python

How can I print an informational message, using g.message, that 
contains unicode stuff via python (2.x)?

For example, how do I correctly translate this command

g.message message="ρ(p) = π x L(λ) x d^2 / ESUN(λ) x cos(θ(S))"

(it contains the greek r (ρ, pronounced rho) and pi (π, pronounced pe)

to work in a python script?

Thank you, Nikos

ps- I am trying to understand unicode stuff by reading this 
<http://nedbatchelder.com/text/unipain.html> but I am still not able to 
get past this "simple" problem.
