Well, let's not assume it and use file_read in general: at some point, someone
might want to hack on Jython/IronPython ports, and the more compatible we are,
the better. I know that _today_ we have sys._getframe (and probably other)
dependencies on CPython, but it doesn't cost us anything right now to keep the
code as open to compatibility as possible.
