Also note that *this*:
Is a valid encoding prefix under PEP 263, which is why I was suggesting
that simply embedding an encoding option could be sufficient.
However, given the reasonable use case of BOM-prefixed files, I think it
would be best to use the PEP 263 specification instead, perhaps with the
addition of support for 16 or 32 bit encodings so long as they are
indicated by a BOM at the beginning of the file.
