The committed fix breaks Mercurial.

The "underlying file-like object" in our case is a wsgirequest but anything else trying to serve a dynamically-generated zip file on the web will probably die. We wrapped wsgirequest to support tell() many years ago probably copying someone else's hack, and it's worked fine across Python 2.4-2.7, but we fundamentally can't support all the new seek()s that were added here.
