If this can't be fixed in short order it should at least be documented so that
people don't rely on the ref counting and auto closing.  Here's a test case to
show it doesn't work.  This fails on both Windows and Linux.

import std.stdio, std.file;

void main() {
    std.file.write("foo.txt", "stuff");
    foreach(i; 0..1_000_000) {
        openStuff();  // Throws too many files error rather quickly.

void openStuff() {
    File myFile = File("foo.txt");
    // Not automatically closed.
