BTW, I've just had an idea which could help us out: when requesting
a codec you can also specify a package name, e.g. say you
have a codec package "mycodecs" which contains a codec "my_utf_8.py".
Then you can write:
and the encodings search function will take care of the rest.
Wouldn't this solve at least some of the problems ?
Adding the "import sitecodecs" to site.py would be an additional
help. But it would create naming problems, which would be avoided
by using the above scheme.
