On Windows, try any character not encodable into your ANSI code page (eg. Ł with cp1252) in the module path and non-ASCII characters in the module name.

On Mac OS X, sorry, it already works.

On other OSes, set the locale to something else than UTF-8 (and than ASCII because ASCII is not very interesting) and try non-ASCII module names. The patch includes set the locale to fr_FR.iso88591 to have ISO-8859-1 as locale encoding and try to load a module called 'issue3080\xE4'. U+00E4 is encoded to b'\xE4' in ISO-8859-1 and b'\xC3\xA4' to UTF-8.
