function close(fd: Number(gint)): Boolean {
    // Gjs wrapper for g_close()

This wraps the close() call; in case of error, %errno will be preserved, but the error will also be stored as a GLib.Error in @error.

Besides using GLib.Error, there is another major reason to prefer this function over the call provided by the system; on Unix, it will attempt to correctly handle %EINTR, which has platform-specific semantics.
