# Pass in a string, will raise an Encoding::InvalidByteSequenceError
# if it contains an invalid byte for it's encoding; otherwise
# returns an equivalent string.
#
# OR, like String#encode, pass in option `:invalid => :replace`
# to replace invalid bytes with a replacement string in the
# returned string. Pass in the
# char you'd like with option `:replace`, or will, like String#encode
# use the unicode replacement char if it thinks it's a unicode encoding,
# else ascii '?'.
#
# in any case, method will raise, or return a new string
# that is #valid_encoding?

# an encoding is a 'Unicode encoding form'
