Actually, I'm not sure it's a good idea. For example, calling os.ftruncate(fobj) on a py3k file object will bypass the object's internal buffering, ignoring any pending buffered data; the right thing to do is to call fobj.truncate() instead.

It may be better to simply mention in the docs that fileno() can be used on file-like objects to get a file descriptor, if needed.
