I noticed this, with a little disappointment. I also noticed that they
implemented a sort of ersatz/platform agnostic reference tracking system
in ssl.py. Seeing the _makefile_refs system got me thinking about the
whole ssl.py/_ssl.pyd paradigm and sockets.cs, since I remembered you
tackled this issue once before (or one very similar to it:
Perhaps something along the lines of _makefile_refs and
GC.SuppressFinalize might get us closer?
