This probably makes perfect sense, but can you please explain briefly why
this is (and should be) so?  Also, why does it take a transcoder argument? 
For that matter, why do the open-file-input-port and open-file-output-port
procedures take a transcoder argument?  I thought we'd decided to
eliminate it.
