I presume you'd be targeting 3.7 for this change.
Does 3.6 seem too aggressive? I think I have time to implement the changes before beta 1, as it's mostly changing default values and mopping up resulting breaks. (Doing something like reimplementing files using the Win32 API rather than the CRT would be too big a task for 3.6.)
I guess I just assumed it was a bigger change than that. I don't object to it going into 3.6 as such, but it might need longer for any debates to die down. I guess that comes down to how big this thread gets, though.
Personally, I'd be OK with it being in 3.6, we'll see if others think it's too aggressive :-)
Testing with obscure filenames and strings is where help will be needed most :)
I'm happy to invent hard cases for you, but I'm in the UK. For real use, the Euro symbol's about as obscure as we get around here ;-)
