I dont know, but if you or someone else implement it, PLEASE do not
close open file descriptors in the stupid way it is done now. (or was
done since i dont run 1.6.latest_fresh_from_trunk).

But at the moment on Linux it closes open files like this:

close_file(0)
close_file(1)
close_file(2)
...
close_file(#limit_of_open_files)

Sometimes this limit is 2^32 files, which makes it SLOOOOW.
