(Appologies for my inital, incomplete email...)
Oops... forgot it wasn't a standard import...

Just move it to the first line of the program, and delete the relevant
elif branch.

It won't hurt code on more recent versions.

from __future__ import with_statement
import sys

buff = []
with open("path_to_input_file", "r") as fin:
   for line in fin:
       buff.append(" ".join(lookup(word) for word in line.split()))

with open("path_to_output_file", "w") as fout:
