Oh! In Python3, ntpath.expanduser() supports bytes path and uses sys.getfilesystemencoding() to encode an unicode environment variable to a byte string.

Should we remove bytes path support in ntpath.expanduser(), or support bytes in ntpath.fsencode()/.fsdecode()?

(sys.getfilesystemencoding() is "mbcs" on Windows)
