Those file descriptor close loops are somewhat controversial.  Not
everyone agrees that they're a good idea, and some upstreams will push
back on doing it.  I find them a bit dubious myself; there are various
hacks that, while hacks, come in very handy but are broken by daemons that
do this.  (Process-inherited Kerberos caches, for example.)
