"No 'magic'" (?? if Google is to be trusted :-) means here that there is 
nothing complicated and strange going on in the background. 
"STREAM.isatty()" just asks a question -- is this a tty? -- and the 
answer will always be the same for the same STREAM.  Either it is a tty 
or it isn't, it will not change from one to the other.  It's exactly 
like "STRING.isnumeric()"; for the same string it will always give the 
same answer.
