in ftplibs.storlines, a call is done on what should be a Text stream:
This would work in pre 3.x as it returns bytes but now that readlines
returns a string, the call at lines 477 would fail:

  File "C:\Python31\lib\", line 477, in storlines
    if buf[-1] in B_CRLF: buf = buf[:-1]
TypeError: Type str doesn't support the buffer API

The readline call should then be encoded().
