There's only one implementation (the one in unicodeobject.c), which is used
directly or via the wrapper in the encodings package, but there
are a few shortcuts to bypass the codec registry scattered around
the code since UTF-8 is such a commonly used codec.

In the case in question, the codec registry should trigger decoding
via the encodings package (rather than going directly to C APIs),
so will eventually end up using the same code. I wonder why this does not
trigger the exception.
