Thanks Bulat for explaining.
Then I think the standard handles should have a type that at least
encodes that they may be closed as in:
stdin â MonadCatchIO pr
â RegionT s pr (Maybe (RegionalFileHandle R (RegionT s pr)))
where Nothing means that the standard handle is closed.
However this still leaves open problem 1, 2 and 3.
