There is a helper library for constructing context managers, see
http://docs.python.org/2/library/contextlib.html. That would have made
your code even shorter.

Argh! Yes, the newly-created file object takes ownership of the
filedescriptor. Once done with it, it invokes close() on it, making it
unusable for the original sys.stdout.
Okay, other approach: I believe that the only function regularly called
on sys.stdout is write(). Just write a replacement that forwards the
data to the original, followed by a call to flush. If you are ambitious,
forward any other call to sys.stdout directly by catching attribute
lookup (__getattribute__) in your class.
