I knew someone would notice the undocumented things before

Since we are talking about being dirty, if I understood your problem,
here is another undocumented ugly thing you can do:
skt = socket.tcp()
Please understand that this is "hacking" LuaSocket. Setting to a
bogus file descriptor might crash LuaSocket and there is no way I can
prevent it. All I am saying is that (unofficially) skt:close() doesn't
do anything crazy. It just closes the fd.
You can even create a tcp bject and leave it there just to call
on every fd you have. (ewwwww)
