Here's a suggestion for a documentation addition. Comments on tone and content are welcome, and I'm willing to update it and submit modified patch files.

This adds the following note:
      If a file descriptor *fileno* is specified, the other arguments
      are ignored and and the socket with this file descriptor is returned. Unlike
      :meth:`fromfd`, this does not cause a duplication of the file descriptor
      and therefore supports the special case of closing detached socket handles
      on Windows using ``socket.socket(fileno=handle).close()``.
