FlushCache may help push the updated geotransform out to the
file immediately for some formats.  But if you are just going to
close the dataset then that should already do the equivelent of
a FlushCache().  So, FlushCache() is only of use to try and
push updates out to a file without closing the file.

Whether it is implemented or not varies from driver to driver.
