New short, simple and clean path: add os.fsencode() for Unix only.


Don't create it for Windows to encourage the usage of unicode on Windows (and use MBCS is a bad idea). fsdecode() was a also bad idea: it's better to keep bytes unchanged on Unix, and it's now possible thanks to os.environb and os.getenvb().
