I don't think it's necessary. I put it there because when I was testing I thought it might help. For example, you might want to keep the pipes open and then open another process with close_fds=False, thus changing the current default might cause some regressions in some software and an argument would allow an easier transition. I updated the patch removing anything unnecessary. Though it still has a huge race when used with threading.
