The current documentation for tarfile.TarFile.extractfile() does not
mention that the returned 'file-like object' supports close() and also
iteration.  The attached patch (against svn trunk) fixes this.

(Background: I was wondering whether I could write

  def process_and_close_file(f_in):
      with closing(f_in) as f:
          # Do stuff with f.

and have it work whether f_in was a true file or the return value of
extractfile(), and thought from the documentation that I couldn't.  Of
course, I could have just tried it, but I think fixing the documentation
wouldn't hurt.)
