The sys.argv docs [1] currently contain no mention of the fact that they are Unicode strings decoded from bytes provided by the OS. They also don't explain how to correct a decoding error by reversing Python's implicit conversion and redoing it based on the application's knowledge of the correct encoding, as described at [2]
