The issue is able being able to be noticied of encoding errors. 
Currently, unencodable characters are silently replaced and you don't 
know if the filename is valid or not. If a UnicodeEncodeError is raised, 
you will be noticed and so you have to fix the problem.

Anyway, you must use the Unicode API on Windows. If you use the Unicode 
API, filenames are no more encoded and code pages are no more used, so 
bye bye Unicode errors!

The Windows bytes API is just kept for backward compatibility. More 
details in my email to python-dev:
