I concur.  I’ve never had to care about buffering for example, but mode is another parameter of open that people may want to give.  I’ll commit the minimal fix to 3.2 and merge in 3.3, and then we can discuss on a new RFE bug about adding encoding vs. **kwargs for 3.3.

Agreed on deprecating the charset hook when it becomes redundant.

Will fix the doc bug about too.
