And that will work for both text and binary files on both platforms?

Here is the problem. We aren't opening the file in binary mode, so it
defaults to text mode, which does newline translation. That is going to
break things pretty quick.

It happens to work on Unix boxes because there is no difference between text
and binary modes.

The line should read:

  p.parse(open(pathname, 'rb'), cd)
