There's no ticket yet. Jared Winick, the creator of the utility to test the
close() based solution, mentioned in chat that he could do it this week.
I'll circle back with him and get a ticket made so that either he or I can
get it done.

Actually, this should block 1.6.0, 1.5.1, and 1.4.5 since once published
we'll be stuck with the API change.

Since this impacts anyone working in a reusable container environment, and
we've already had one group of users bring it up as a significant issue, I
would vote that it should block. Non-binding, that is.
