Another Unicode Patch to Boto

I just committed the following patch to the Key class in the boto Amazon Web Services python framework:

         resp = self.bucket.connection.make_request('GET', path, headers)

If you have unicode characters in your strings that out of the 128 ascii character range, then trying to access that path with urllib could cause you some trouble. As I did with my previous patch to boto on this issue, I solved this problem by encoding the string that was passed to urllib to utf-8 and all was well.
