Houston, we have a problem! The py3k PEP 3137 branch is seriously broken
under Windows.

Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: can't initialize sys standard streams
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\dev\python\py3k-pep3137\lib\encodings\__init__.py", line 32,
in <module>
    from . import aliases
ImportError: cannot import name aliases

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual
way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.

The py3k branch still works so it wasn't caused by the merge from the trunk.
