Summary: codecs base classes need documentation
Details: The documentation for the codecs module includes a note that base classes need to be implemented; this needs to happen for the 2.0 final release.
There should be some note at the top of the section about what the module is for -- Unicode is not mentioned, but that's the primary (expected) use. Let's say something about that, and perhaps give examples at the end (especially for handling encoded files).
For the open() function, the docs refer to a "buffering" parameter, and say that it matches the meaning of the the same thing for the open() built-in. It should be called "bufsize" to match the built-in documentation.
