Antoine's suggestion of being a little more aggressive in choosing utf-8 over ascii as the OS API encoding sounds reasonable to me.

I think we're getting to a point where a system claiming ASCII as the encoding to use is almost certainly a misconfiguration rather than a desired setting. If someone *really* means ASCII, they can force it for at least the std streams with PYTHONIOENCODING.
