Create a function like linecache.getencoding() seems to be overkill.

I created issue #10335 to add a function tokenize.open_python(): open a Python 
script in read mode without opening the file twice and get the encoding with 
detect_encoding(). This issue is more generic than trying to optimize the 
trace module.

For this case, I think that we can add a try/except IOError with a fallback to 
encoding = 'utf-8'.
