Martin Panter added the comment:

The documentation was technically correct but too scanty. 
does defer to readall(), but with a proper size passed, it defers to readinto() 
instead. Here is a patch which hopefully clarifies this, and also explains 
which methods have a usable default implementation. Includes some tests for 
RawIOBase and BufferedIOBase which didn’t seem to be there already.
