[Win32utils-devel] IO.read - binary by default?

Hi all,

I'm sick of hitting bugs in 3rd party libs where the issue is that the 
authors didn't do a binary read on the data. It's hard to track down 
sometimes and it currently makes creating cross-platform code more 
difficult.

Is there *any* downside to making IO.read binary by default (on Windows) 
that anyone can think of?

Thanks,

Dan
