I found .pth file is decoded by the default (i.e. locale-specific) encoding.
pth files contain:

For import statement, UTF-8 is the default Python code encoding. For paths, fsencoding is the right encoding. It is UTF-8 on Windows (excpet PYTHONLEGACYWINDOWSFSENCODING is set), and locale-specific encoding in Linux.
What encoding should we use?

What are packaging tools like pip and setuptools writing .pth files out as?
