Encoding: "none"?

An option available for reading file in a specific encoding is to have it set to "none". What does this mean?

"None" label is confusing since every data stream needs to be interpreted with an encoding, so it is for sure that an encoding is present at some point.

If this is a shortcut to a specific encoding detection, then "Automatic" could be a better label for it.

    I'm totally agree, we better change it or just remove it. Use "none" option is the same as do not specify any option, so both cases the encoding is detected automatically.
    Thanks for the suggestion!
