New submission from Jan Niklas Hasse:

Working with Docker I often end up with an environment where the locale isn't 
correctly set. In these cases it would be great if sys.getfilesystemencoding() 
could default to 'utf-8' instead of 'ascii', as it's the encoding of the future 
and ascii is a subset of it anyway.
