Don't use fileinput, it can't handle r+, only sequencial access.
Even if you could use it, the documentation says :
fileinput.input([files[, inplace[, backup[, mode[, openhook]]]]])
"r+" corresponds to the `inplace` parameter (behaving like inplace=True)
instead of `mode`. You could write fileinput.input(sys.argv[1:],
mode="r+") instead - but again from the docs: "mode... must be one of 'r',
'rU', 'U' and 'rb'"

open+seek is the way to do that (assuming you don't alter the line length)
