[R] R.oo Destructors

Has anyone figured out how to create a destructor in R.oo?

How I'd like to use it:  I have an object which opens a connection thru RODBC
(held as a private member) It would be nice if the connection closes automatically
(inside the destructor) when an object gets gc()'ed.

Thanks in advance.

BTW, a >BIG< thanks to Henrik Bengtsson for creating the R.oo package!
Lucky for me as I am not smart enough to use S4...
