Your issue is about decoding command line argument which is done from main() function. It doesn't use Python codecs, but functions like Py_DecodeLocale().

> Question 1: why is windows excluded? Because it does not use UTF-8 as it's default (it's default is CP1252)

Windows uses wmain() which gets command line arguments as wchar_t* strings: Unicode. No decoding is needed.
