What if os.system(), os.execvp() and friends used "wcstombs" (or locale.preferredencoding) to convert arguments from unicode to bytes? this would at least guarantee round-trip when spawning another python interpreter.

An interesting test is to compare the effects of os.unlink(filename) and os.system('rm "%s"' % filename), where filename is non-ascii. Does it work today?
