If you go in this direction, I would like to follow you for the
UNIX/BSD side to make the switch portable. I was thinking about "-X
utf8" which avoids to change the command line parser.

If we agree on a plan, I would like to write it down as a PEP since I
expect a lot of complains and questions which I would prefer to only
answer once (see for example the length of your thread on python-ideas
where each people repeated the same things multiple times ;-))
