It has often troubled me that programs (python included) report "can't open 
file" when it is more accurate and useful to report "can't find file".

I once went in circles for several hours with MS Tech support over this. 
They did not even suggest to see if the file were there!

So I recommend that in a future version of Python we fix this message.
