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.
