Even if the notion of default encoding were dropped from
Python, my application will need a global variable to have
one encoding that is used most of the time. That`s what I`m
using the default encoding for right now. Also, at least one
of the 3d party modules I'm using does the same and it makes
tons of sense. Changing the default encoding from within my
application doesn't work, because sys.setdefaultencoding()
gets removed (which makes sense, too, of course). So I need
a custom for every project which may or may
not be adhered to, depending on the PYTHONPATH variable.
That`s why a  PYTHON_DEFAULT_ENCODING variable would be very
usefull to me.
