We're already using fopen in other places in Samba too, so to be honest
I did not feel the need to justify this. The restriction of stdio to
a low number of fd's is just too silly to really think about, at least
from my point of view. Unless you show this mentioned somewhere in posix
I would just put a silent R.I.P. to it.

But on the other hand -- feel free to modify the commit message of the
removal patch.
