I updated the PEP:

- add a new section "Performances of Closing All File Descriptors"
- mention a previous attempt in 2007 to add open_noinherit
- complete the summary table of the status of python 3.3 to mention
the "subprocess, replace stdout" case
- Windows creates non-inheritable *handles* (not fds) by default
