> UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xf1 in position 1: invalid continuation byte

Python is right: b'f\xf1\xf6rd' is not a valid UTF-8 string:

$ python3
Python 3.7.3 (default, May 11 2019, 00:38:04) 
>>> b'f\xf1\xf6rd'.decode()
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xf1 in position 1: invalid continuation byte

This change is deliberate: it makes UTF-8 incremental decoder correct (respect the UTF-8 standard). I close the issue.
