On second thought, yes, you're right. The OutputStream might be reused 
later, and if you call close() in the flow you miss that opportunity. 
I'm reverting the patch right now: next on the list is finding out why 
close() in flowscript was giving me problems, while putting it there 
solved everything. Probably something wrong in FileSource.
