Should at least begin to fix #1009, by correctly escaping strings with \U or \u in them.

This only broke a few tests because repr defaults to 'single quotes', whereas our implementation defaulted to "double quotes". I've fixed those.

Bonus fix: a couple of config tests were failing on Python 3.


Note that %r will do the repr() for you.

('%r' % value) == ('%s' % repr(value))

Good point. Done.
