Oops, I did. Thanks for that.

So setContent overwrites the file like open('myfile', 'w').write() would, except it has an option to give the temporary file a different extension (in case of a crash while writing). That's understandable for Twisted.
getContent returns a file-like object, which is more like Path's open().

One thing I am not seeing is a readlines/writelines in these two libaries. I still think they would be useful, even without the size argument for readlines.

So this is what I am seeing now:
  readlines_text(encoding=None)  ..(or read_textlines?)
  write(data, append=False)  ..(mode is decided based on data type)
  writelines(lines, append=False)

..determining the mode for writelines looks at the first item's type?

The regular writelines fails with 'must be str, not [insert wrong type]' when opened with 'w', and '[insert wrong type] does not support the buffer interface' when opened with 'wb'.
