[New-bugs-announce] [issue18299] Change script_helper to use universal_newlines=True in _assert_python

New submission from R. David Murray:

A look at a random selection of tests that use script_helper indicates that using universal_newlines=True would either simplify or make no difference to the usage of the script_helper assert_python functions in the majority of the tests that use it.  Even if there turn out to be a few uses where having bytes is required, it would probably be worth catering to the common case and making those exceptional cases use Popen directly.  (Or alternatively provide assert_python_xxx_binary helpers.)
