In Python 3, the documentation no longer mentions that 'U' should not work with '+' (or 'w' or 'a', for that matter), and the code throws ValueError if 'U' is used with 'w' or 'a', but not '+'.

On the other hand, the documentation *does* mention that 'U' is for backwards compatibility and shouldn't be used with new code.

In light of this, how do you suggest to proceed with this issue?
