Subject Re: Setting Charset in getBytes() call.

+1 Mike.

1. It would be hard for me to believe Key/Value are ever handled 
internally in terms of Strings, but, if such a case does exist, it would 
be extremely prudent to fix.

2. FWIW, the Shell does use ISO-8859-1 as its charset which is 
referenced by other commands [1,2]. It would be good to double check all 
of the other commands.
