For 2.7, adding the automatic RTLD_MEMBER mode does not seem like a bug fix to me. Currently, I understand this code could load two separate libraries:

file = CDLL("libcrypto.a(")
member = CDLL("libcrypto.a(", DEFAULT_MODE | 0x00040000)

With your proposed change, the first line will do the same as the second line, and Python will no longer provide a way to load a file named like in the first operation. Maybe this is okay for the next version of Python 3 (because it is only breaking a rare corner case), but my view is it is not worth changing 2.7.
