Hi folks,

Late last year I started working on a change to the CPython CLI (*not* the shared library) to get it to coerce the legacy C locale to something based on UTF-8 when a suitable locale is available.

After a couple of rounds of iteration on linux-sig and python-ideas, I'm now bringing it to python-dev as a concrete proposal for Python 3.7.

In terms of resolving this PEP, if Guido doesn't feel inclined to wade into the intricacies of legacy C locale handling, Barry has indicated he'd be happy to act as BDFL-Delegate :)
