I've proposed that before.  But if it wasn't vetoed it was -0.5'ed, with
the reason being that a lazy closing of file descriptors and other
resources is one of the main points of the pool cleanup system; closing
all these things can take a good deal of time, and it's better to do it
after the client has received all of the data than during mainline request
processing.
