cStringIO versus StringIO: "readlines"

I noticed that StringIO has a "readlines" member function and cStringIO
doesn't.  Is anyone planning on adding this in the near future?  I was
wondering if I should go ahead and do it or if there is against.

The cStringIO documentation just says "provides an interface similar to
StringIO" and StringIO says "see the description on file objects."
Needless to say, I use readlines() quite a bit.
