Python uses GetACP(), the ANSI code page of the operating system, for years. What is the advantage of using a different encoding? In my experience, most applications use the ANSI code page because they use the ANSI flavor of the Windows API.

What is the use case for using ___lc_codepage()? Is it a different encoding?
