It should probably be changed to refer to "the file interface" or similar,
rather than removed altogether.

The io documentation may be unnecessary detail for many users. It would be
better to provide a more general overview, with a link to the io
package for those interested in the precise details. Also, removing the
section on "file objects" altogether is likely to be unhelpful for people
migrating from 2.x to 3.x.
