[I18n-sig] Transparent Encoding

I would like to suggest that if the "data_encoding" parameter of
EncodedFile is missing or None, the encoding "unicode_internal" should
be used. Right now it is not really clear how to use the EncodedFile to
*encode* or *decode* as opposed to *transcode* (translate between
encodings). In fact it is documented only as a transcoder even though I
think that it will more often be used as an encoder or decoder.
