I am looking to clean-up potential ResourceWarnings in distutils. The patch will provide 2 changes:
    - ensure file descriptor are always closed when it is not the case
    - and uniformization of the "with open(...)" use

There is a similar open issue issue22831 with patches for distutils and Tools.

I saw it but it is quite old and targetting 3.5. I opended this issue to target only distutils, easier to eventually backport than a big patch on a lot of files.

I think the places that already use try/finally: close are correct.

We try to minimize churn in distutils; changing to with is nice but does not fix errors or warning in these cases.

The changes for the few spots that don’t use finally: close are welcome though!

OK then I updated the PR to only update code that would really leak resources.
