dup3() was a bit of a "straw that broke the camel's back" case. I could
point at the existence of g_unix_open_pipe() as a similarly ridiculous
case, or many others.
I'm also not impressed by the inaccurate categorisation. I thought I
explained fairly clearly why I believe that leaked fds will _not_ be the
case, even without O_CLOEXEC.
I was looking for some slightly more constructive arguments...
