For object serialization and some other purposes, Java encodes unicode
strings with a modified version of utf-8:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTF-8#Java
http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/io/DataInput.html#modified-utf-8

It is used in Lucene index files among other places.

It would be useful if Python had a codec for this, maybe called "UTF-8J"
or something like that.
