Is there a simple way to wrap a built-in function for the whole package?

I like to redefine all the open() there with the default encoding 'utf-8', but not for code outside the package. Maybe I can put my def statement at the beginning of every module of this package, but just wondering is there a simple way of doing it?
I would define something like this in the __init__.py file of the
package (or in some utils.py file in the package):
return open(path, encoding='utf-8')
from . import open8
and use "open8" throughout the code instead of "open"?
What not alias "open"? Because I would want it evident that in this code
we're doing a slightly special flavour of open. By using a distinct name
I avoid confusion about the unusual semantics.
