Yep. It doesn't seem to have any noticeable effect. close-ing the
file handle also seems to unhook the print_hook so that remote
printing is disabled as well. Setting the file to /dev/null would
leave remote printing enabled which could cause extra communication
between hosts in multihost setups (cluster).
