[New-bugs-announce] [issue9598] untabify.py fails on files that contain non-ascii characters

New submission from Alexander Belopolsky <belopolsky at users.sourceforge.net>:

For example:

$ ./python.exe Tools/scripts/untabify.py Modules/_heapqmodule.c
Traceback (most recent call last):
    ...
    (result, consumed) = self._buffer_decode(data, self.errors, final)
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0xe7 in position 173: invalid continuation byte


I am not sure what relevant C standard has to say about using non-ascii characters in comments, but the checking tool should not fail with a traceback in such situation.
