I think it can be useful in case the program creates its own
session/terminal using openpty?

From pythonrun.c:

    /* Set sys.stdin */
    fd = fileno(stdin);
    [...]
    /* Set sys.stdout */
    fd = fileno(stdout);
    [...]
    /* Set sys.stderr, replaces the preliminary stderr */
    fd = fileno(stderr);
