A (probably crazy) idea that just occurred to me:
  typedef char utf8_bytes;
  typedef char iso8859_1_bytes;
  typedef char fsenc_bytes;

then specify the encoding in the type signature of the API e.g.:
- int PyRun_SimpleFile(FILE *fp, const char *filename)
+ int PyRun_SimpleFile(FILE *fp, const fsenc_bytes *filename)
