I suggest that these enterprise user markets have developed ways to deal
with this, since it's how Unix has behaved from its earliest days.

File descriptors are inherited from parent to child, and descriptors
duplicated using dup/dup2/fcntl share the same underlying file object,
including the file pointer.  Posix standardizes this historical behavior.
