The documentation for tempfile.mkstemp() says "If text is specified, it indicates whether to open the file in binary mode (the default) or text mode. On some platforms, this makes no difference." That might have been true for Python 2.x, but in Python 3, there are no platforms for which the choice whether to open a file in binary mode makes no difference.
