I think this is not a problem to keep xmlstream.ENCODING to
site.encoding, and it's not useful either to change it in jabber.py code :
this variable is accessible, so the simplest solution i took is just
importing and reassigning it in my module when i need another encoding...

Thanks very much for your help.:)
