I seem to recall one of the design principles of the new IO stack was to
avoid relying on the C stdlib's buffered API, which has too many
platform-dependant behaviours.

In any case, binary reading has acceptable performance in py3k (although
3x-4x slower than in 2.x), it's text I/O which is truely horrendous.
