getdefaultencoding might be "targeted" at the OS level - but
the implementation certainly is not. On the OS level, the C
library will often use a different encoding after
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL,"") is called, compared to
what getdefaultencoding returns. The approach takien inside
getdefaultencoding is inherently flawed, and cannot possibly
work in all cases; getpreferredencoding fixes that flaw.
