Found the method in 3.10 and checked it against 3.9 (same method), but in
3.8 the method source code is garbled (decompiler shows it's the same
Meanwhile I did:
filedIn unpatched 3.9 from fileOut of my patched 3.10 (has no BOM): worked
filedOut again from 3.9: (it wrote BOM as expected)
filedIn 3.9 the fileOut from 3.9 (it has BOM): it worked
filedIn 3.10 the fileOut from 3.9 (it has BOM): it worked
Now I'm stuck, since the problem was not reproduced ? (did a lot of
changes meanwhile to the class comment in question). Will have to go
through the .changes and try to find the problematic chunk. FWIW the net
effect was the compiler raised a SyntaxError complaining about the BOM
I'll let you know what I find.

Anything which at fileOut time is compatible with fileIn's decision should
work (IMHO), for example #isOctetString looks to be great for many

Okay. And thank you.
