I don't agree that that was a worthy design goal.  Tons of code (incl
the old CPython successfully used the stdlib functions).  IMO, a 3x or
4x falloff for binary reads/writes is a significant disincentive for
adopting Py3.0.  For binary reads/writes, I would like to see the open()
factory function return the old, fast object instead to trying to slowly
simulate it without adding any benefits noticeable to an end-user.  IMO,
it's a case of practicality beating purity.
