Okay, but the docstring you quoted:

"Elements of the list are file descriptors (as returned by a file
object's `fileno()` method) or Python `file` objects."

implies that fh.stream would work as well as fh.stream.fileno(), and I
presume you internally do a hasattr(thingy, 'fileno') to get the
descriptor.
