I suggested this not knowing whether Python would ever grow support for
sendfile(), since it seemed like the sort of thing that
performance-oriented async-io frameworks might want to set up with
ctypes or similar. However, I've just discovered that os.sendfile() will
be in Python 3.3:


Since your PEP has a 3000-series number anyway, os.sendfile() might
potentially be quite useful.
