Difference between CPython and Jython seen with this example:

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

import codecs

data = memoryview(b"中文")
text, decoded_bytes = codecs.utf_8_decode(data)
assert text == u"中文"
assert type(text) is unicode
assert decoded_bytes == 6

This works fine on CPython. On Jython, it fails with TypeError: utf_8_decode(): 1st arg can't be coerced to String

Current workaround is to use tobytes on the memoryview object:

text, decoded_bytes = codecs.utf_8_decode(data.tobytes())
