Interesting. Maybe the better thing to do then is to set the 'errors' flag of
bytes.decode to 'replace':

out.decode(encoding='utf-8', errors='replace')

Which would just take things it can't decode and use the � character. Does that
sound like a better plan since it would give a result other than crash?
