(this is redirecting from http://bugs.python.org/issue5451). The 
documentation for io.StringIO is incorrect on the arguments. First off, it 
doesn't actually accept the "encoding" and "errors" arguments. Second, 
it's not stated that the default "newline" argument is "\n", as opposed to 
it's parent class TextIOWrapper, which defaults to None.
