Thanks, i don't have much experience writing peps and
if i don't bug you may i ask what "alternatives" refer to?

For the encoding of the contents, well since we are
packaging python code files, it's handling will be the same
as handling outside the zip file. It's handling is the
same as how zipapp handles things.

If we are talking about filenames, then i guess
ascii filenames are the way to go as you'd
unnecessarily break things otherwise.
