At least for Linux, that's not hard and I doubt it is for other OSes.

>>> import os
>>> nfds = len(os.listdir('/proc/%i/fd' % os.getpid()))
>>> print nfds
4

On other Unixes, you can simply use fcntl() to scan all possible FDs
for open FDs.

On Windows you can use one of these functions for the same effect:
