[New-bugs-announce] [issue12021] mmap.read requires an argument

New submission from K Richard Pixley <rich at noir.com>:

mmap.read requires a argument.  Since most file-like objects do not, this breaks the file-like object illusion.

mmap.read argument should be optional, presumably defaulting to the entire mmap'd area.
