Bug Description

Tried to run buildout to set up python-etcd. Got the following exception:

$ bin/buildout -D
Develop: '/home/shaun/git/python-etcd/.'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/shaun/git/python-etcd/eggs/zc.buildout-2.3.1-py2.7.egg/zc/buildout/", line 1946, in main

    hash.update(' '.join(filenames).encode())
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xed in position 176: ordinal not in range(128)

Turned out to be gmusicapi, which includes a file with non-ascii unicode characters in the name.
