I agree in principle. However, just allowing to call feed with a
Unicode object is too permissive: What if you had previously called it
with a string?

So if this is allowed, care should be taken that a sensible thing
happens when somebody mixes byte and unicode strings (signalling a
fatal error might be sensible).
