Hi,

  Since some people are convinced that encoding/doctype defaults are a
bad thing, I like to propose an explicit `fallback` parameter for the
check script that ensures I get a result without potentially
re-re-requesting the results (no encoding => re-requesting with
explicite encoding, no doctype => again re-requesting with explicite
doctype). This could be hidden from normal users. e.g.

  /check?uri=...&fbenc=iso-8859-1&fbdt=HTML+4.01+Transitional

regards.
