I think it should be file.file.read(). You also may want to make sure that
it's a file upload first - you can do this by testing for existance of a
filename attribute, e.g. hasattr(file, "filename), or, more accurately,
you can make sure it's an instance of util.Field:

	if isinstance(file, util.Field):
		data = file.file.read()
		return "This is not a file"
