Serhiy Storchaka added the comment:

FileIO repr now looks confusing:

>>> sys.stdout.buffer.raw
<_io.FileIO name='<stdout>' mode='wb' closefd='0'>

The closefd attribute is not a string '0' or '1', it is boolean value True or False. Here is a patch which fixes a repr.

And I think that documentation part of the patch should be backported.
