Subject: [boost] File Handle and FILE* wrappers?

Would there be any interest in wrappers for file handles / descriptors
Sometimes one needs native handles or FILE* for interoperability or
special features like memory mapped IO, but standard C++ doesn't
provide convenient RAII friendly wrappers for these.
The idea seems trivial yet quite useful.
I'm aware of <boost/iostreams/device/file_descriptor.hpp> but it seems
to be too high-level.
I've put a simple start for FILE* at
What do you think?
