New issue 3165: PyPy should set `errors="surrogatepass"` when decoding numpy arrays to unicode scalars
See [https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues/15363](https://github.com/numpy/numpy/issues/15363), where the bug was reported in numpy.
The fix in numpy was to replace calls to `PyUnicode_DecodeUTF32` with calls to `PyUnicode_FromKindAndData(PyUnicode_4BYTE_KIND, ...)`.
However, it seems that PyPI does not use our code there, and has their own implementation. Assuming `PyUnicode_FromKindAndData` is not available, the equivalent python code would be `some_bytes.decode('utf-32-le', errors='surrogatepass')`.
