I will add your alternative to the PEP (except if you would like to do that yourself?). If I understood correctly, you propose to:
* rename codecs.open() to codecs.open_stream() * change codecs.open() to reuse open() (and so io.TextIOWrapper)
(and don't deprecate anything)
This may be an interesting approach. In a few years, we can evaluate whether users are calling open_stream(), and if there aren't any, we can deprecate the whole thing.
Indeed. I'm also heavily influenced by MAL's opinion on this particular topic, so the fact he's OK with this approach counts for a lot. It achieves the main benefit I'm interested in (transparently migrating users of the codecs.open API to the new IO stack), while paving the way for eliminating the redundancy at some point in the future.
