Bug Description

pastebinit from a file to paste.openstack.org fails:

paulo:~/tmp$ pastebinit -i /etc/lsb-release -b paste.openstack.org
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/pastebinit", line 417, in <module>
    params = json.dumps(params)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.6/json/__init__.py", line 231, in dumps
    return _default_encoder.encode(obj)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.6/json/encoder.py", line 199, in encode
    chunks = self.iterencode(o, _one_shot=True)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.6/json/encoder.py", line 257, in iterencode
    return _iterencode(o, 0)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.6/json/encoder.py", line 180, in default
TypeError: Object of type 'bytes' is not JSON serializable

It doesn't seem to depend on the file type: I tried with quite a few and the error was the same each time.

It works as expected when reading from stdin:

paulo:~/tmp$ cat /etc/lsb-release | pastebinit -b paste.openstack.org
