R. David Murray added the comment:
This requires (1) a doc update to indicate the problem and (2) a way to tell fileinput to *not* use readlines to optimize by calling readlines(bufsize), since in the case of using codecs it can be a problem. Presumably buffer=None would be the logical way to spell this.
I'm marking this as a doc bug, a separate issue should be opened for adding the fileinput buffer=None enhancement.
(The codec module's comments indicate there's no practical way to implement sizehint.)
