[jcifs] Package access classes, methods, etc.

Speaking of make methods public, what is the proper way to close or
disconnect when using a named pipe?  The SmbFile.close() method is
package-private (not public, protected or private), and there is no
corresponding disconnect() method for the public connect() method.

It would be nice if SmbFile.isConnected() was public as well, at least
in the case of a named pipe.
