It seems to be working consistently (see UTF-16 extreme example below),
but I had expected it to act similarly to Python 2.6, which it does not.
I suppose this is due to the distinction now made between strings and
bytes in Python 3.0.

I was initially concerned that Python 3.0 was always just giving an
ASCII byte stream no matter what encoding was chosen (since you can't
tell between ASCII and UTF-8 for the characters being used in the
example), but the UTF-16 example shows its fine.

I agree that as long as the documentation in Python 3.X notes it will
return "bytes", then its fine. Thanks for the clarification/confirmation.
