Well... you can cheat, here :-)

Since the internal members of FILE aren't available to users, you don't
*have* to keep this info *directly* in FILE.  It would be another structure
logically associated with a given instance of a FILE.  You could reference
these other structures in a hash table, using a FILE * as a value to hash
for the lookup.
