New submission from Zdeněk Pavlas:

Please consider setting the default file mode to O_BINARY.  O_TEXT
breaks many unix programs and Windows has stopped to use CRLF files for
anything of use since the introduction of Win95's registry anyway.

Days when majority of "C" codebase actually DID process text files AND
CRLF files were used are long over and since Python is NOT "C" it should
reflect that.
