FWIW, I couldn't find any use of getdefaultlocale in any of the hg revisions (using hg grep) in

Instead, it's (probably) docutils, which has this code:

    locale_encoding = locale.getlocale()[1] or locale.getdefaultlocale()[1]
    # locale.getpreferredencoding([do_setlocale=True|False])
    # has side-effects | might return a wrong guess.
    # (cf. Update 1 in

I find that quite unfortunate, since locale.getpreferredencoding() would have don the right thing (IMO).
