Well, I don’t care about close/exit at all, but I also have mostly
different windows open – which annoys me. There are just too many
windows. A Mac/Windows-user might be used to this, but I like a clean
workspace with only a few windows (on 12,1" screen …)
So in this close/exit debate, maybe the feature of tabbing could also be
regarded? At the moment I can kind-of use tabbing via my window manager,
but it’s just not the same :(

I don’t understand why not just open a new document and then closing the
old one instead of the other way …
Another feature request in this context: Opening a non-existing
document. I.e. with kile, I can just open a document by typing some name
to the ”open“ dialogue and then can save the document with this name. So
I don’t have to say ”new“ and then save it. It’s also kind of saving two
klicks/keystrokes, but I would like it.
