I think what you're after is the encoding used in SMS messages:

Here's an old discussion about this codec:

Note that nowadays, SMSCs and interface software such as Kannel
typically accept UTF-16 data just fine, so the need for such a codec in
Python in minimal.

I agree with Martin, that the stdlib is not the right place for such a
codec. It's easy to write your own codec package and have your
application register this package at startup time using codecs.register().
