Although if I remember, it's not uncommon to need to execute it twice,
and it's been a while that I checked the actual implementation. Also
note that it may not trigger immediate finalization code. For implicit
immediate finalization, WITH- macros are popular in Common Lisp.
They're easy to implement based around UNWIND-PROTECT, and at the same
time prevent needing error-prone and ugly explicit finalization
