Sebb resolved IO-363.

    Resolution: Not A Problem

This is not really a problem; null is still accepted.

> org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils.readFileToString(new File("myFile"), null) in 2.4 produces the following compilation error "The method readFileToString(File, Charset) is ambiguous for the type FileUtils", even though the javadoc says "encoding - the encoding to use, null means platform default".
> This is due to FileUtils having 2 readFileToString methods -  readFileToString(File file, Charset encoding) and readFileToString(File file,
> String encoding)
