I don't have Porter at hand, but something looks a little screwy here. "the
door will be kept *shut*. This obviously does not come from KALEW but
KLEIW, "to shut". It is possible that the EI has been changed to H. The
perfect passive should be KEKLEISTAI (adds epenthetic S) and the future
perfect passive would be KEKLEISETAI.
