Right. To be honest, I consider the str/unicode unification a much
bigger project than the new I/O library. I plan to do the new I/O
library first (mostly in Python) first, hopefully at the PyCon sprint,
since it can be done with the bytes and unicode objects; the old I/O
library will break once we do the unification so the I/O library must
be replaced before the unification can be started.
