"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."

Oh, this documentation is wrong since at least Python 3.2: if nl_langinfo(CODESET) fails, Python exits immediatly with a (fatal) error.

There is no (more?) such fallback to "utf-8".
