fd-closing finalizer on streams considered unwarranted
OPEN passes :AUTO-CLOSE T to MAKE-FD-STREAM, resulting in the creation
of a finalizer for the stream which closes the underlying file descriptor in case
it has not when the stream will be garbaged collected.
I think that is not a good thing to do (by default anyway) because it postpones
fd leakage problems, and makes them harder to track down.
