> Usually, when a new option is added to Python, we add a command line option (-X utf8) but also an environment variable: I propose PYTHONUTF8=1.
> Use your favorite method to define the env var "system wide" in your docker containers.

This doesn't help me, as I already set LANG to C.utf-8.

I'm rather thing about new people trying out Python in Docker who don't know about this.

Furthermore I think that UTF-8 is the future and the use of ASCII should be discouraged.
