I think you should use the locale's encoding to process the data, ie.
either mbstowcs, then Unicode from wchar_t, or decode with the
nl_langinfo(CODESET) encoding. You might have to set the locale before
this can work (which isn't thread-safe), so it might be tricky to implement.

Python already does nl_langinfo at startup, but then restores the
locale. It should probably save the default locale's codeset somewhere,
as C code requires it in many places.

There is also a "system" encoding, but that is UTF-8 independent of the
