This test remains clearly buggy, at least in theory - the user could have a
default charset named UTFred that does not handle unicode. I think the
test also depends on the replacement.
The test could be made more robust and also get more coverage by iterating
over all available charsets, (or unconditionally using e.g. US-ASCII)
It's possible to check for encodability using
It's possible to get the replacement byte array using
