Personally, I’m not too enthusiastic, because it is rather magical, and does not work in all cases. It seems more like a feature than a bug fix. But I have rarely used the fileno=... parameter, and it shouldn’t have much negative impact, so I’m not too fussed.

According to Issue 27377, these are some cases where parts won’t work:

* Windows and OS X (and older versions of Linux and BSD) don’t have SO_PROTOCOL
* getsockname() not guaranteed to work on unbound sockets, especially on Windows, and Free BSD with SCTP sockets

Also, if we are going to read SO_PROTOCOL when fileno=... is given, why not also read it in the normal case when proto=0 (unspecified) is given?
