I like the new syntax, but you can already do what you want with iter():

md5 = hashlib.md5()
with open('/etc/fstab', 'rb') as file_reader:
    for chunk in iter(lambda: file_reader.read(1024), b''):

Anyway, both use case fall short IRL, because you would wrap read in
huge try/except to deal with the mess that is letting a user access the
