Agree PyOS_PutEnv would be good since its not restricted to string encoding and resolves the problem of not being able to control env vars for an embedded interpreter in general.

Having ways to change encoding is good too but a bit outside the scope of this report and possibly not the best solution either since its possible (through unlikely), that you need to set the encoding at the very start of python initialization- rather than site & builtin modules loads.
