Nick: "Should we deprecate our implied support for calling Py_DecodeLocale() before calling Py_Initialize()?"

Please don't do that. Py_DecodeLocale() is the best available function to decode paths and environment variables to initialize Python. The implementation of Py_DecodeLocale() is very complex, but we need this complexity to decode "correctly" OS data.
