IMHO this is the wrong approach.
As Martin v. Löwis suggested here http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2010-January/094841.html the best solution would be a new codec (which he named sniff), that autodetects the encoding on reading. This doesn't require *any* changes to the IO library. It could even be developed as a standalone project and published in the Cheeseshop.
