A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
O_NOSTD is a joke. WAAAAAAAAAAAH I don't want to call some syscalls in gnu coreutils cp. So yeah, lets add more flags to open and freaking *socket* while we're at it?
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH I don't want to close fds in my pre exec code so I need CLOEXEC added to Everything. Jeez, even a per process flag to say no inherit by default would be better than that crap.
God, Linux is turning into Windows crapware. Please Linus...axe this crap.

Personally I'd rather break those libraries than have descriptor leaks, security holes and more complicated APIs. After all what we're doing now pretty much requires all libraries to be changed anyway, only this way, it's silent breakage in the meantime.
