[Distutils] [issue10] [PATCH] Immediately close all file handles

New submission from Philip Jenvey <pjenvey at underboss.org>:

I'm being pessimistic here and ensuring setuptools closes all files immediately 
when done with them, in particular for Python VMs that don't use reference 
counting GC.

Those VMs may not GC/close those files until later, and open file handles are 
particularly bad on Windows (you can't delete a file that's in use).

This is of low priority
