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.

> We could add a handler for UnicodeDecodeError that falls back on utf-8?

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