I think that Raymond marked as "won't fix" because automatic float ->
integer conversion has been deprecated since Python 2.3.0 (if not
earlier), for exactly the reason you state. It's dumb.
__main__:1: DeprecationWarning: integer argument expected, got float
Apparently file.seek doesn't have this DeprecationWarning though..
