Python 3.3 adds support for this mode: see issue #12760.

I created the issue #16850 for this mode.


Other modes seem to be very specific to some platforms. I don't think that it would be possible to expose them in a portable way using the open() function directly.

Can we close this issue? I prefer to work on #16850 for the close-on-exec mode.
