Speaking with my importlib hat on, I need a function that can easily
return the encoding of a file, so I have another legit use-case for
the functionality where exposing it through some built-in fashion
would be REALLY appreciated (I have one hacked together as
imp.source_open() in my bootstrapping work, but I still don't think it
is a very good solution).

Who is loading 'warnings'? If it something minor and very
startup-specific, perhaps using _warnings instead is a possibility.
