Along with another PYIOENCODING related one that the Blender folks reported
(Christian Heimes pointed it out to me earlier today).

Anyway, I created a page on the wiki for the data gathering process:


It's now a matter of going through and sorting out:

1. What gets set during startup?
2. Where does it get set (or modified)?
3. How is that configured?

Once we have a good view of that, *then* we can start looking for ways to
simplify the code, make the whole system more embedding friendly (i.e. by
giving the embedding app total control via a simple and clean API) and
still support the proposals for improvements.
