Here is a simple documentation patch to guarantee that at least one byte is normally returned. This would make the method much more useful, and compatible with the BZ2File and LZMAFile interfaces, allowing them to use BufferedReader, as I propose to do in Issue 15955.

Even if nobody is interested in Torsten’s patch to limit the return length, I suggest my patch be considered :)
