I vaguely recalling poking around with adding one but it would conflict with 
OutputStream's close(). Creating a Closeable interface - this is where I 
can't remember the details - ended up requiring all Stream classes to be 
declared as Closeable. Or something like that. It's worth giving it another 
shot for sure.
