    It provides the information, yes, but it also hides some information.
    If you do it this way we cannot distinguish code which uses O_CLOEXEC at
    open-time from uses of fcntl(FD_CLOEXEC).

    This is not needed for the specific application I have in mind. But if
    you, for instance, want to track down code which uses fcntl instead of
    doing the work at open-time using O_CLOEXEC we would need this information.
