New submission from Jean-Paul Calderone <exarkun at divmod.com>:

codecs.lookup is documented as returning a tuple.  It actually returns a
what the registered lookup function returns, which really *should* be a
codecs.CodecInfo instance.  If a registered lookup function actually
returns a tuple, then codecs.getreader and the other similar functions
won't work.
