Yes,exactly these were the matter of discussion. That "GNOME apps
should never crash" for #11 is of course a nice design goal, but apps
can always have unexpected issues.
CTL+Q and ALT+F4 isn't exactly user-friendly.
But well, at least for the GMenu stuff, there was some fallback in
place before, so support for other desktops might be restored in GTK+
- I still have some hope.
