It's not about familiarity, it's about "goodness"... you can argue
that it's an anti-pattern :)

I think discussed this offline after this mail was sent and the
consensus was that if this is indeed an issue it should be handled
either in the driver release() function, or on the library destructor
function. After all a process can be killed any time.
