Got all three at . Probably got all
three wrong too, so any feedback is very welcome :)

I think a neat improvement, besides better docs, names, code, etc.,
would be to implement Carl Bank's idea of checking Content-Encoding.

Oh, and there's a 'print("Using default charset '%s'" %
response.charset)' in there that seemed educational when I wrote it,
but now sounds lame :)

Glenn, can you test the patch[1] there?

Thanks for the encouragement, Chris! I hope we don't regret it :D
