New submission from Shantanu <hauntsaninja at gmail.com>:

The softspace attribute of files was removed in Python 3 (mentioned in https://raw.githubusercontent.com/python/cpython/master/Misc/HISTORY)

However, tempfile.SpooledTemporaryFile still has a softspace property that attempts to return read the softspace attribute.

In [23]: t = tempfile.SpooledTemporaryFile()                                    

In [24]: t.softspace
