compute_transitive_closure

 Title   : compute_transitive_closure
 Usage   :
 Function: Compute the transitive closure over a given ontology
           and populate the respective path table in the relational
           schema.

 Example :
 Returns : TRUE on success, and FALSE otherwise
 Args    : The calling adaptor.

           The ontology to compute the transitive closure over (a
           persistent Bio::Ontology::OntologyI compliant object).

           The predicate indicating identity between a term and
           itself, to be used as the predicate for the paths of
           distance zero between a term and itself. If undef the zero
           distance paths will not be created.

           A scalar that if evaluating to TRUE means truncate the
           paths for the respective ontology first (optional;
           even though the default is FALSE this parameter should
           usually be given as TRUE unless you know what you are
           doing).
