I added PyUnicode_DecodeLocale(), PyUnicode_DecodeLocaleAndSize() and
PyUnicode_EncodeLocale() to Python 3.3 to fix bugs. I hesitate to
expose this codec in Python: it can be useful is some cases,
especially if you need to interact with C functions.

The glib library has functions using the *current* locale encoding,
g_locale_from_utf8() for example.
