This just in from pypy-dev.  I am reposting it here because I
am fairly certain that nobody on the pypy-dev mailing list
uses the multibytecodex, but there has got to be at least one
person here who does.

Please reply to the pypy-dev article, not here, or mail to pypy-dev at python.org
if you are not on the pypy-dev mailing list (but have delivery turned off
as many of you do.)

Thank you,

Subject: [pypy-dev] multibytecodec: missing features

Hi all,

Here are the missing features in multibytecodec:

* support for ``errors !=3D "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/issue12100 and
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 !=3D "strict"'' :-)
