Paul, result as iterable of CodecInfo objects is gives much more flexibility than the names of codecs (whats if you will have a few codecs with the same name in different SearchObjects?)

encoded_data = 'abc'
for codecs in codecs.registered_codecs():
 decoded_data = codecs.decode(data)
 if decoded_data == 'cba': # cracked

Whats about backward compatibly with Lib/encoding modules (initial item in interp->codec_search_path)? Can we skip anything in search_path, if its not supports iteration?
