comment Should I avoid using style like `for k, v in dict_sample.items()`?
This question comes dangerously close to being a rant in disguise ("I'm curious if other people feel like I do" and "___ sucks, am I right?" on What types of questions should I avoid asking?). At the least, I'd consider it a leading question.

comment Phrasing a requirement about filename encodings
@Gabe The web server, when it serves the file, may indicate the encoding. If not, there are also text analysis heuristics that can guess an encoding.
