Please address UTF-8 mode explicitly in open() or elsewhere. The locale
module is about the state of the lib C, not what Python enforces via
options in its own I/O layers.

As mentioned, both should ideally be synchronized, though, so
UTF-8 mode in Python should trigger setting a UTF-8 encoding
via setlocale().
