No, I'm actually just saying that this is not a bug and maybe not even a
missing feature. It's a design decision. Saying that the "encoding" keyword
doesn't work, just because it detects the error that the user passed an
encoding target that cannot represent the data, is pretty obviously wrong.
Some people may expect this error.
