      I can't find any way to close the IndexSearcher (and IndexReader) that
      is being used by SpellChecker internally.

      I've worked around this issue by keeping a single SpellChecker open
      for each index, but I'd really like to be able to close it and
      reopen it on demand without leaking file descriptors.

      Could we add a close() method to SpellChecker that will close the
      IndexSearcher and null the reference to it? And perhaps add some code
      that reopens the searcher if the reference to it is null? Or would
      that break thread safety of SpellChecker?

      The attached patch adds a close method but leaves it to the user to
      call setSpellIndex to reopen the searcher if desired.
