The wrapper approach has the virtue of providing easy access to the
underlying file object and its methods. That actually gets a bit more
difficult when you switch to a subclassing approach (you need to either
explicitly qualify the methods or play around with super()).

The wrapper approach also has the virtue of being a valid candidate for
backport to 2.5.2, while that is most definitely *not* the case for
making file fully subclassable. If you would like to pursue that idea
further, I suggest opening a separate issue for it.
