close stream &key abort[Generic Function]

Closes the given stream. No more I/O may be performed, but inquiries may still be made. If :abort is false then an attempt is made to finish-output on the stream and clean up the side effects of having created the stream. A default method is provided for the class stream that clears the flag read by open-steam-p.
