For the record, I don't find the behavior of __iter__ on a binary file at all confusing.  It's the same behavior I see if I open the file in, say, vi.  So it is in fact the behavior I expect, and I would be surprised if it didn't work.

Whether it is *useful* is a different story, but I'd be willing to bet that there are or will be python3 programs that do use it.
