Granted, such a condition is an error, but there's no reasonable recourse to the failure.
Using IOUtils.closeQuietly() is very useful but all information about the success/failure
is hidden. Returning Throwable will give insight into the error for diagnostic purposes. This
change will be compatible with today's usage since the method currently returns void.
