You can install any codec you like and those essentially decide
on what to return as type. However, the unicode methods only
allow strings or unicode to be returned in Python 2.
In Python 3, .encode() only allows bytes.

You can still get the full codec encode/decode functionality
via the codecs encode/decode methods in Python 3.
