It looks like that still uses close (without the `_`) on windows, which we are trying hard to avoid here, but I'm not sure why. I know close is technically deprecated on windows, but AFAIK the only thing deprecated about it is the name, and otherwise it works correctly.

I dug into this a little bit to find out what the actual difference is, and there isn't a difference at all. `close` and `_close`, `fdopen` and `_fdopen`, and all other pairs of underscore and non underscore names both resolve to the exact same symbol in the object file (it links in an object file that has a symbol for `close` that aliases it to `_close`. So there is literally no difference.
