Bug #28180 has caused me to make a look at the "encoding" issue this and the tickets before have tried to solve more or less. Being a bit unsure what the root cause and intention for all this was I'm now at a point to actually check this ticket. Here is an example code (executed with Python 3.5.3 RC1 by having LANG set to C):

import sys

I thought with the surrogateescape error handler now being used for sys.stdout this would not throw an exception but I'm getting this:

UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character '\xe4' in position 0: ordinal not in range(128)
