> While debugging an issue involving usage of {{CloseShieldOutputStream}} I discovered that {{ClosedOutputStream#flush}} is not overridden and will silently succeed. Not sure how much of a breaking change this might be but I think it makes more sense for {{ClosedOutputStream#flush}} to throw. This is only really meaningful in contexts where multiple streams are being chained together and some of the streams before {{CloseShieldOutputStream}} perform buffering, but it would make behavior more consistent for these more complex use-cases.
> No patches are included because I'm interested in hearing what the opinion would be on this issue. I can provide a patch if this seems like desired behavior.
