You are missing some background information. :)
I've spent a considerable amount of time with the design and development
of Python 3.0. I don't mention the fact in order to show off. I just
wanna explain to you that my suggestion has a solid background.

You are going throw a lot of unnecessary pain and suffering. Python 3.0
is for people, who like to play with cutting edge software and for
library developers, that port their code to 3.0. I appreciate your hard
work but it's really the wrong way. If you like to offer your help then
help the developers of pyserial. Please don't try to come by with a
hacky approach as using the old MS DOS magic files.
