"The surrogateescape error handler works with any codec."

The surrogatepass only works with utf-8 if I remember correctly. The
surrogateescape error handler works with any codec, especially ascii.

"As a side effect of this change an input from stdin will be incompatible
in general with extensions which implicitly encode a string to bytes with
UTF-8 (e.g. tkinter, XML parsers, sqlite3, datetime, locale, curses, etc.)"

Correct, but it's not something new: os.listdir(), sys.argv, os.environ and
other functions using os.fsdecode(). Applications should already have to
support surrogates.
