After thinking about it more, the real problem is that the charset setting must match the chars used and how they re encoded, so no one setting is right for all uses. An alternative to changing the default in existing versions is to at least document what it is and explain how to work around it with .replace -- for instance output.replace('ISO-8859-1', 'utf-8'). I agree that adding a parameter (charset=xxx) is a new feature.
