added encode('utf-8') to Record.as_marc and decode('utf-8') to Record…

….decode_marc so that users can get/set unicode objects instead of strings. This is important for calculating byte offsets correctly, as Ted noticed: https://lists.launchpad.net/pymarc-team/msg00007.html

+v2.40
+- renamed Record.as_marc21 Field.as_marc21 to Record.as_marc and Field.as_marc ;
+ to bring in line with Record.decode_marc -- but I created aliases for the old
+ methods so people's code won't break.
+- Record.decode_marc now decodes utf-8 after fields have been extracted with
+ byte offsets. Similarly Record.as_marc encodes fields as utf-8 before
+ calculating byte offsets. This hopefully will help people like Ted who
+ were trying to create records with Unicode in them, serializing them as
+ marc, and then other software complaining about record length, byte offsets
+ being incorrect. https://lists.launchpad.net/pymarc-team/msg00007.html
+- disabled quiet marc8 error test since whatever marc8 error was coming up
+ now has disappeared with the new utf-8 encode/decode action.
