[New-bugs-announce] [issue7417] open builtin has no signature in docstring

New submission from ulrik <ulrik.sverdrup at gmail.com>:
Python 3.1.1's open has no signature in the docstring so the
documentation for this builtin function is unfortunately very confusing
(IMO is missing the most important part).
Open file and return a stream. Raise IOError upon failure.
This must be a regression from the C port of the io module.
I'm keeping my eyes open for more issues like this. Python must be more
friendly to newcomers, but I have seen tendencies of confusing
documentation in Python 3.
