For ASCII protocol pickles, intended for human 
readability, one should use text mode to be able to read 
the file, for instance, in Notepad.

For either binary protocol, I would think binary mode 
should be best even to reread on Windows.  If anything is 
added, I would put
"On Windows, open files in a mode (text/binary) that 
matches the protocol."
at the bottom of

Looking forward to 3.0, when file mode might be more 
significant (text/binary corresponding to unicode/bytes), 
the "for windoews' qualifier might be omitted, but this 
might be premature.
