I noticed that the documentation for unicode() says, "if the
encoding is not known, LookupError is raised". Regarding the
3rd parameter ("errors") to unicode(), the docs say, "Error
handling is done according to errors; this specifies the
treatment of characters which are invalid in the input
encoding. If errors is 'strict' (the default), a ValueError
is raised on errors..."
ref: http://docs.python.org/lib/built-in-funcs.html

That makes the code's current behavior doubly confusing
because a the documentation says that a ValueError is
reserved for indicating an undecodable byte sequence, not an
unknown encoding name.
