I know close can fail, but that wasn't my point.

How complicated can a failed-to-close code path be that you can't test it 'by inspection'?

And if it is complicated enough to warrant it, it probably indicates poor design.

More likely this is the triumph of a "100% code coverage" mandate over reason.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
