Any chance this patch could be applied to version 2.7? It's still an issue in 2.7.3, even though a suitable patch was supplied 3 years ago.

I understand that it's fixed in python3, but for us poor maintainers of ancient code, it would be convenient to be able to do things like

with StringIO() as test:
    return test.getvalue()
