I think if you look closely at the patch, the fd does not stay open the whole time. It is opened if necessary in _get_handles() with e.g.:

elif stdin == DEVNULL:
    p2cread = self._get_devnull()

and then closed in _execute_child() with:

if hasattr(self, '_devnull'):

which is executed from __init__(). So I don't think it stays open for eternity :-)
