The documentation for the `-u`-flag (https://docs.python.org/3/using/cmdline.html#cmdoption-u) contains:

> The text I/O layer will still be line-buffered if writing to the console, or block-buffered if redirected to a non-interactive file.

This does not appear to be the case -- instead it is always line-buffered:

https://hg.python.org/cpython/file/v3.5.1/Python/pylifecycle.c#l1041

Attached is a trivial patch that simply removes everything after "line-buffered".
