I don't think we need it to change everything now.

Add the docs, always add the docs before considering a PR completed.

I think this is necessary, don't love it, but that is the annoying thing of encodings, not this PR. This PR is ok. The only thing I would consider is to have just 1 encoding for "replace" methods, so they keep the current encoding, and that function will not do also a change of encoding.

Then, later (Conan 2.0), we probably want to revisit our encoding rules and behaviors, maybe use the open(encoding=xxx) argument instead of encoding ourselves, etc.
