In that particular case, because it isn't actually a file.  That workflow was my attempt at simplification to illustrate a point.

I think the point is moot however, as I've gotten what I needed from this feature request/discussion.  Not one, but three Python developers seem opposed to the idea, or at least skeptical.  That's enough to tell me that my first-order supposition that Python objects could be MERGEABLE is not on target.
