Since this change seems to break the backward compatibility, is it safe to apply it to Python 3.5.x and Python 3.6.x? The bug was reported in 2009, 7 years ago. Can the fix wait for Python 3.7?

test_file contains code which worked well before the change and started to crash after the change. If it occurs for an application, I expect users to be unhappy of getting such "behaviour change" in a minor release, no?

Is it possible to prevent the crash of test_file without modifying its code (without the change 4a610bc8577b "Change order of io.UnsupportedOperation base classes")? Sorry, I didnd't follow this issue.
