stdout capture doesn't include mode

Issue #373 new

In pytest #245, I discovered that distribute does not copy the mode when wrapping stdout in This behavior triggered unexpected behavior when the 'mode' attribute wasn't present. It appears as if the TextIOWrapper supports a mode attribute but doesn't necessarily require it. Nevertheless, it seems reasonable that Distribute should copy the mode attribute when wrapping stdout. I can't see any harm in it, and if it provides better compatibility with other library's expectations, I believe it's worthwhile.
