I'm looking into it.

Unfortunately, it seems that you need to use non-default flags when reopening a shared file.  Eg, if the file is currently opened with SH_DENYNO and O_TEMPORARY, then you must reopen it using SH_DENYNO and O_TEMPORARY.

However, I have an initial implementation of os.sopen() which makes the following work:

  import os, tempfile

  FNAME = "foo.txt"
  DATA = "hello bob"

  def opener(name, flag, mode=0o777):
      return os.sopen(name, flag | os.O_TEMPORARY, os.SH_DENYNO, mode)

  with open(FNAME, "w", opener=opener) as f:
      with open(FNAME, "r", opener=opener) as f:
          assert == DATA

  assert not os.path.exists(FNAME)

BTW, Maybe it would be better to add a keyword-only shareflag argument to rather than add os.sopen().
