I'm only aware of one tool that writes .pth files, and that's setuptools, and it always writes ASCII (assuming package names are ASCII), so any encoding handling should be fine there.

Yes, reasonable, but maybe we should consider instead _preferring_ UTF-8 and fall back to default encodings. That would be my preference.
