Well, I guess not then. I assumed that "file" would treat a .py file as a text

"file" tells me that a file that's created with Borland Turbo C (DOS) is
"data", but a file of C source code that's created with Linux gedit is "ASCII C
A text file that's created with the DOS "edit" command is "ASCII English text,
with CRLF line terminators", and a text file that's created with Linux gedit is
So file can tell the difference in pretty much every case except for a Python
file. Which may be an oversight in the magic definitions.
