os.close(fd) of a socket fd does not work some platforms, e.g. Windows. In the past we have used socket.socket(fileno=fd).close() to close a socket in a platform independent way. With bpo-28134 it may no longer work in all cases, most noticeable when the socket has neither been connected nor bound yet and auto-detection of type and family is used.
Instead of adding more hacks, I propose to add a socket.close(fd) function as cross-platform way to close a socket fd. It won't be the first function that mimics an o' module function. The socket module already has the undocumented socket.dup(fd) function.
Note: these values reflect the state of the issue at the time it was migrated and might not reflect the current state.
