This makes a lot of sense to me. I don't think that too many WinDOS/MacOS
users would be lost in the transistion, either; there are examples of
this sort of menu in both systems. 

And yes, at a *code* level, exiting an app does close files. How
many users concern themselves with that, though? Just wondering.

My take on it is: Program deals with the program (although I go for
the Gnomeprint icon, HCI warts and all--see other post). File deals
with the file(s). I think the conceptual split is important and

I'm with you on this one, Tom.
