I presented three solutions for handling shell-command-to-string, but
I was confusing it with another function which is a command.
shell-command-to-string is only used in Lisp programs, and probably
those programs will not show that text to a user except in error messages.

Perhaps it should always do strict decoding.

Can you present a real example of using shell-command-to-string
that really needs to do flexible decoding?
