I found another bug in hz codec.
hz encoding uses 7-bit ASCII to represent Chinese characters, it was popular in USENET networks in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

I will do more check and fix them together, then I will invite you to review the patch.

u = 'hi~python'
b = u.encode('hz')   # bug in this step, the right sequence should be b"hi~~python"
print(b)    # the output is b"hi~python"

u = b.decode('hz')   # so can't decode, UnicodeDecodeError raised
