[New-bugs-announce] [issue10785] parser: store the filename as an unicode object

New submission from STINNER Victor <victor.stinner at haypocalc.com>:

The Python parser stores the filename as a byte string. But it decodes the filename on error because most Python functions now use unicode strings. Instead of decoding the filename at error, which may raise a new error, I propose to decode the filename on the creation of the parser object and only store the filename as unicode.

This issue would prepare the last part of the full unicode support (#3080).
