This probably only applies to Windows. The redundant 'b' modes still work on Linux.

These worked on Windows in 2.6.4:

open('test', 'rbb')
open('test', 'wbb')
open('test', 'abb')

and possibly others.

In 2.7a2, they throw ValueErrors like this:

>>> open('test', 'wbb')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: Invalid mode ('wbb')

It would be nice if the old behavior were preserved for backwards compatibility. Some programs append a 'b' indiscriminately.
