Fixed, thanks for the patch!

While this works as a short-term solution, I think it would be good to
 1) reintroduce the aliases in 3.4 (so that codecs.encode(b'foo', 'base64') works without spelling out the full codec name);
 2) either separate these codecs from the others, or tweak the error message of str.encode/bytes.decode to point to codecs.encode/decode.
Should I create a new issue and/or ask python-dev about this?
