[pypy-dev] multibytecodec: missing features

Here are the missing features in multibytecodec:
* support for ``errors != "strict"''.
* classes MultibyteIncrementalEncoder, MultibyteIncrementalDecoder,
MultibyteStreamReader and MultibyteStreamWriter.
One reason I didn't implement the classes yet is that I couldn't
understand two points in how they are supposed to work. But it seems
that there are really two bugs, as I've been pointed to:
http://bugs.python.org/issue12171 . So the question is if we should
be bug-compatible with Python 2.7 or if we should instead implement
some fixed version.
I suppose I'm rather for the fixed version, but I'd like to hear some
feedback from people that actually use multibytecodecs. Also, I
wouldn't mind if someone would pick up the work and just do it, either
the classes or ``errors != "strict"'' :-)
