I'm not sure that multibyte encodings other than UTF-8 are used in the world. 
I'm not convinced that we should support them. If the changes are small, it's 
maybe not a bad thing. Do you know which applications use such codecs?

pyexpat_encoding_create() looks like an heuristic. How many multibyte codecs 
can be used with your patch? A whitelist of multibyte codecs may be less 
reliable. What do you think?
