ASCII and UTF-8 are the two most common codecs in the world, so it's justified to have heavily optimized encoders and decoders.

I don't know any application using UTF-32-LE or UTF-32-BE. So I don't want to waste Python memory/code size with a heavily optimized decoder. The patch A looks to be enough.


32 bit units is commonly used with wchar_t, but this format already has a fast decoder, PyUnicode_FromWideChar(), which uses memcpy() or _PyUnicode_CONVERT_BYTES().
