On further thought, I think a Closeable interface is very useful.  The 
need for a close() method comes up in many interfaces.  For example, 
this just came up in Nutch:


I also just noticed that a Closeable interface has been added to Java 
1.5.  So let's move Closeable to org.apache.hadoop.io, with a note that 
it should be replaced by java.io.Closeable when we move the Java 1.5, okay?
