> Hmm, is there a way to get the current number of open file descriptors?

Under Unix, you can use resource.getrlimit():

(1024, 1024)

But 1024 is a very common value, so you could simply loop 1024 times if
it's not too slow.
Besides, you definitely don't want to loop 2**31 times if 2**31 happens
to be the current limit.
