On windows, why can't create script to paths including multibyte chars?

I got error with installing scripts to path including multibyte chars by pip.

all right, windows has filesystem encoding in mbcs. But shebang is read by python launcher on Windows. Maybe Python Launcher can read shebang in utf-8. I think shebang can be translated in utf-8 on windows.

    I tried writing shebang in utf-8. But distlib's launcher couldn't find executable. And tryied writing shebang in windows native coding system(mbcs). That is OK.
