Éric, if you are saying, "the user asked for it, it *should* fail", then that is indeed one of the arguments put forward in issue 9992 where this was discussed. But I think the emerging consensus is that it is better to just avoid the problem by always using the locale on Unix, and solve the problem that PYTHONFSENCODING was supposed to solve in a different way (by always using utf-8 on OSX and unicode on Windows).
