I haven't seen OP in over 30 days, so am posting my own patch.

I've added an optional argument that defaults to strict and gets passed along.

This is off-topic, but is there any way I can submit a patch that allows a similar fix for stdin? Presently there is no way at all to pass malformed unicode through fileinput using stdin that I can find.
