I tested localeconv() with PR 4174 on FreeBSD:
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, "C")
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_NUMERIC, "ar_SA.UTF-8")

It works as expected, result:
decimal_point: '\u066b'
thousands_sep: '\u066c'

Compare it to Python 3.6 which returns mojibake, it seems like bytes are decoded from Latin1:
decimal_point: '\xd9\xab'
thousands_sep: '\xd9\xac'

Raw byte strings, Python 2.7:

* decimal_point: b'\xd9\xab'
* thousands_sep: b'\xd9\xac'
