sys.getfilesystemencoding() says for Unix: On Unix, the encoding is the user’s preference according to the result of nl_langinfo(CODESET), or 'utf-8' if nl_langinfo(CODESET) failed.

In my opinion relying on the locale environment is risky since filesystem-encoding != locale. This is especially the case if working on a filesystem from an external media like an external hard disk drive. Operating on multiple media can also result in different filesystem-encodings.

It would be useful if the user can make his own checks and change the default filesystem-encoding if needed.
