It's a security issue because Python 3.8 says it will open files to be executed with io.open_code() instead of open(). This allows a way to bypass that.

That said, this appears to be a fallback case, so I'm not hugely concerned. I haven't quite figured out why it would fall back here (that involved reading the pkgutil sources ;) ).

I would vote for backporting to 3.8.1, but if Tal wants to push back and nobody else has an opinion then whatever.
