Here is another edit pass, incorporating Éric's suggestions and adding some additional tweaks.  In particular, I eliminated the anti-pattern of catching (IOError, OSError) in one of the earlier examples in favor of the correct EnvironmentError, and also improved the error message generated in that case :)
