You can only do that if you *break encapsulation*, which as I said
earlier is voiding the entire point of having a modular interface.
Having a configurable encoding just means that *every* WSGI
application *must* verify the encoding in order to be safe. I'm all
in favor of making everyone suffer equally, but all else being equal,
I'd prefer them to suffer idempotently rather than conditionally. ;-)
