Its more than just a docs issue - "AFAICT it isn't possible to tell if closefd is set after the object is created."

The presence of the parameter in the signature is there, but it isn't documented *where the bulk of the FileIO parameters are* - there are docs for mode for instance. Why would we force users to follow breadcrumbs for one parameter but not other ones?
