I don't think we can remove the "U" option from 2.6/2.7; it was certainly introduced for a reason and isn't inconsistent with the "U" option to the built-in open().

On 3.x, behaviour is indeed inconsistent with the standard IO library, so maybe we can either wrap the object in a TextIOWrapper, or remove support for "U".
