[New-bugs-announce] [issue15571] Python version of TextIOWrapper ignores "write_through" arg

New submission from Nick Coghlan:

In discussing #15216, I noticed that the write_through parameter is completely unused in the Python implementation of TextIOWrapper.

That also means we have a hole in the test coverage: there is no test that is run on both the C and Python versions to ensure that the data is being written directly through to the underlying buffer (e.g. by passing in a mock buffer object).
