Python 3.7.0a4 includes the implementation of the PEP 538 (C locale
coercion) and PEP 540 (UTF-8 Mode). Please test this Python with
various locales, especially with the POSIX ("C") locale!

Note: The UTF-8 Mode has a known issue with the readline module, I see
how to fix it (add new encode/decode functions which ignore the UTF-8
mode and really use the current locale encoding), but I didn't have
time to fix it yet:
(I skipped the test to repair the CI, until I can fix the bug.)
