OpenAnything

In Dive Into Python, Mark Pilgrim offers the function openAnything
that can open for reading "anything" (i.e. local files or URLs). 

I was wondering if there was already in the standard Python library
an "official" version of this, that could not only open (for reading)
regular files and URLs, but also other data sources such as compressed
files.

TIA!
