When using the new plistlib.load and the FMT_BINARY option, line 997: 

p = _FORMATS[fmt]['parser'](use_builtin_types=use_builtin_types)

doesn't send the dict_type to _BinaryPlistParser.__init__ (line 601), which has dict_type as a required positional parameter, causing an error

def __init__(self, use_builtin_types, dict_type):

My first report, hope I'm doing it right...

Thanks for the report.  Can you supply a test case and/or a fix patch?  Ideally, the test case would be a patch to Lib/test/  If you're interested, there's more info here:
