If I can find some time, I may took a look at this.   I just noticed that similar problems arise trying to wrap TextIOWrapper around the file-like objects returned by urllib.request.urlopen as well.

In the big picture, some discussion of what it means to be "file-like" might be in order.   If something is "file-like" and binary, should that always imply that I be able to wrap a TextIOWrapper object around it in order to encode/decode text?  I would argue "yes", but I'd be curious to know what others think.
