the next version of PEP278, universal newline support, and the 
accompanying patch are available for your review and testing.

The patch has changed very little:
- open(filename, 'U') is now the way to open files for universal 
newline reading because 't' may have a use on Windows;
- --with-universal-newlines is now the default configure option.

The PEP has changed a bit more, mainly addressing issues brought 
up by Guido and Greg Ward.

Please read, test and comment,
