> And the environment? [it’s not even clear.] https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44479826/how-do-you-set-...

That question is about interpreting backslash escape sequences for bytes in an environment variable. All this person wants is `os.environb` (and look, its existence highlighted a Windows incompatibility, saving them from subtle bugs like every other Python 3 improvement). https://docs.python.org/3/library/os.html#os.environb

Thanks, never noticed environb. I’m still learning new things about Python 3 ten years later.
