[Gdal-dev] line to polygon with ogr2ogr?

Just to be really sure I thought I'd ask...:

Is it possible to convert a line (multiline) shapefile to a polygon shapefile 
using ogr2ogr?
I have a shapefile (I did not create myself, of course...) which was for some 
(none) reason saved as line, but should be polygon. All lines are closed as 
far as I could see, but the type is just wrong and I can't add it to my main 
polygon table for this theme in postgis. Can I change this with ogr2ogr, or 
do I need some other trick?
