Why do you use Unicode with the ugly surrogateescape error handler in
this case? Bytes are just fine for such usecase.

The surrogateescape error handler produces unusual characters in range
U+DC80-U+DCFF which cannot be printed to a console because sys.stdout
uses the strict error handler, and sys.stderr  uses the
backslashreplace error handler. If I remember correctly, only UTF-7
encoder allow lone surrogate characters.
