Oh, set_encoding.patch is wrong:

+            offset = self._decoded_chars_used - len(next_input)

self._decoded_chars_used is a number of Unicode characters, len(next_input) is a number of bytes. It only works with 7 and 8 bit encodings like ascii or latin1, but not with multibyte encodings like utf8 or ucs-4.

I wrote a new patch using this idea. It does not work (yet?) with non seekable streams. The raw read buffer (bytes string) is not stored in the _snapshot attribute if the stream is not seeakble. It may be changed to solve this issue.

set_encoding-2.patch is still a work-in-progress. It does not patch the _io module for example.
