A couple of specific problems have been raised by Terry here. Checking each against the current Python 3 status, some have already been fixed:

* The signature has been fixed in Issue 19548.

* The StreamReader.readline(size=...) parameter documentation has been fixed to match the docstring in Issue 18336.

So that leaves these three problems, as I see it:

1. The notice about opening in binary mode still needs fixing for encoding=None.

2. The buffering parameter is applied to the underlying call, so should be clarified in the documentation.

3., encoding=...) will by default call, "rb", buffering=1), which makes no sense according the the documentation.
