What?  The entire message follows.

I think you are not understanding the point very well.

Py32 and Qt derivative + plenty of dirty tricks.
(It will probably not be rendered correctly.)

Write something like this (an interactive interpreter)
in Py32 and Py33 and see what happens:

 >>> print(999)
999
 >>> sys.version
'3.2.5 (default, May 15 2013, 23:06:03) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)]'
 >>> # note the emoji and the private use area (plane 15)
 >>> a = 'abc\u00e9\u0153\u20ac\u1e9e\U0001f300\udb80\udc00z'
 >>> print(a)
abc需ẞ🌀󰀀z
 >>>

Note: it can be "cut/copied/pasted" with a MS product.

PS I have to recognized, I'm slowly getting tired to
find thousand and one ways to make Python crashing
or failing.

That is a standard Windows build. He is again conflating problems with 
using the Windows command line for a given code page with the FSR.
