I agree it is a nice idea, but have the same concern as David. Many pseudo file objects wrap real file descriptors. E.g. BufferedReader hides unread data in a buffer, GzipFile decompresses data, HTTPResponse decodes chunks. Detecting when sendfile() is appropriate would be hard to do. And I understand some platforms only support sockets.

Also I notice that 3.5 has a new socket.sendfile() method (Issue 17552), which partly overlaps with this proposal. BTW the 3.4 os documentation should not mention the socket method, but it does!
