> I dislike lying in the locale module. This change is basically useless with my PR 13230.

Note that Python produce "cpNNN" encoding name, not Windows.

So I don't think it is lie.  It is just "what encoding name we should choose when GetACP() returned 65001.".
With your PR 13230, cp65001 is truly utf-8.  So returning "utf-8" seems right behavior.
