Closes the mmap. Subsequent calls to other methods of the object will

the open file.
I think this could be improved. Anonymous mmap objects don't have an "open file". Also, it would be clearer if it read "the underlying file" rather than "the underlying file object" rather than "the open file", because an mmap object is a file as well (it has read(), write(), seek(), etc.).
