autodetect_encoding default value

Issue #23 resolved

It seems redundant to be forced to pass {{{autodetect_encoding=False}}} every time you want to pass an encoding - if not passed as {{{False}}}, the {{{encoding}}} passed in is never used! It's fine to have the default value be {{{True}}}, but that default should be ignored if an actual encoding is passed, and auto-detection never performed when an encoding is passed in.

What would it mean to pass in an encoding //and// have auto-detection enabled?
