[New-bugs-announce] [issue3192] exec(open(filename)) doesn't work

New submission from Mike Speciner <speciner_michael at emc.com>:

In 2.5, exec(open(filename)), where filename refers to a file with
python code, executes the code.
In 2.5, open returns an open file, but in 3.0, open returns a stream,
and so exec (which wants "a string, file, or code object, not
TextIOWrapper") returns an error. exec should probably be able to handle
a stream.
