Instead of documenting what *encoding* and *errors* do, I would just say that str(bytesobj, encoding, errors) is equivalent to bytesobj.decode(encoding, errors) (assuming it really is).  I don't like encodings/decodings done via the str/bytes constructors, and I think the docs should encourage the use of bytes.decode/str.encode.
