Here's a proposed patch that touches the Sphinx documentation and a docstring in codecs.py.  The text is slightly revised from my current revisions to the Unicode howto.

help(open) says "See the documentation for codecs.register for a list of the permitted encoding error strings".  This is strictly correct: the Sphinx documentation features this info.  But help(codecs.register) doesn't; it's more helpful to look at help(codecs.Codec).  

So maybe the docstring for open() should say: "See help(codecs.Codec) for a list of the permitted..." instead.
