We're interpolating a bytes string into a regular string, which
doesn't quite work as expected:

commit = "b'816e3fa'"

We'll need to explicitly decode it first.

Apart from that, since the file should always be pure ASCII, it should
be possible to use the built in open() function, rather than
io.open(), and avoid having to do map(unicode, ...).

I'll prepare a small PR to add to our stack ;-)
