> I hadn't realized that we'd made such a declaration WRT opening of code files in general.

It wasn't exactly a hugely publicised declaration :)

The relevant quote from PEP 578 is:

> All import and execution functionality involving code from a file will be changed to use open_code() unconditionally.

Which I admit is a big claim, and one that was not completely followed through with before 3.8.0. Calling it a "security" fix is borderline, as it isn't really a vulnerability by default, but calling it incorrect behaviour (i.e. a regular bug) is fine by me.
