Reading from file up to arbitrary byte.

Is there a simple way of reading from a file object up to a specific
byte value? I would like to do this without reading one character at a
time, or reading in chunks and holding a remainder over.
Failing that, as a lightheartedly proposed extension, what do people
my_file.readline(line_terminator = "\x7f")
my_file.line_terminator = "\x7f"
Does anyone know of a publically available subclass of file that would
allow such, or similar behaviour?
