I fixed my locale back before my OS fully supported doing so.
It was painful, but it was *so* worth it.  There were many
tools that just worked better after I did that, and several
tools that I had to convince to use utf-8 through non-standard
means.

So I think Python is doing the right thing by using the locale
(the Standard Way), and that getting the OS vendors and/or
the users to fix their locale settings is indeed the right place
to fix this.
