Consider implementing close-at-EOF behavior for string input stream

See bug 1333899 comment 57 for why this would be nice.

We need to be careful about two things if we do this:

1)  We need to implement the reopen-on-seek behavior file streams have; multiplex input stream depends on its streasm doing that.

2)  We _may_ need to change HttpBaseChannel::ExplicitSetUploadStream to NS_BASE_STREAM_CLOSED from Available as NS_OK and a 0 length.  This might not be needed if we do our "we're EOF, so close" bits from Read/ReadSegments, instead of SetData.

Either way, this would involve being able to "close the stream but not clear out the data" so we can do that "reopen on seek" thing.
