Thanks for the tip... I wasn't aware of sitecustomize.py (site.py does call
that just before removing setdefaultencoding() from sys, so I can still use
sys.setdefaultencoding)... actually, setencoding() from site.py does have
what I would like to execute:
    if 0:
        # Enable to support locale aware default string encodings.
        import locale
        loc = locale.getdefaultlocale()
        if loc[1]:
            encoding = loc[1]

I just don't get why the code has that "if 0:" instead of getting it from
some user-config (like env variable or parameters passed)...

Anyways, thanks a lot... I think I can arrange in providing a
sitecustomize.py from pydev with that structure.

Cheers,

Fabio
