Yes, but you also need to keep track of who's using the writer before you
can close it. Additionally, closing a writer yourself doesn't make sure that
cached readers and searchers also get closed. This is a key functionality of
LuceneIndexAccessor - it caches readers, searchers and writers as long as
possible, but closes and reopens them when necessary.
