Three possibilities come to mind:

a) builtin
b) imported from a module
c) static function of the file type

Since there will probably be a number of such functions
(readlines, readbytes, readblocks, etc.) I'd probably
vote for b) and have a module such as 'files' or
'filetools' to hold generically-implemented file-related
