Oops. I hadn't looked closely enough at the os module; I found
that os.open will take os.O_RDONLY and os.O_NONBLOCK as
arguments. :)

I decided to go from:

fd = open(dev)


fd = os.fdopen(os.open(dev, os.O_RDONLY | os.O_NONBLOCK))

I assume this'll be just about equivalent, which allows me to keep the
interface the same for my module (important to me!).
