Alt-F4 closes a window under Windows and not the application.  This is 
behavior defined by Microsoft so I don't think Wing should try to do 
something different.  Ctrl-Q will close the application under many 
keyboard personalities.

By recovering a close window, do you mean recreating a toolbox window 
with the same tools?  I can see the value in that.
