  Even SDI applications usually support multiple windows served by the
same process, where File->Exit quits the application by closing all
windows.  Since each window contains one document, on File->Exit you may
have to confirm saving multiple documents.  And it's annoying to have to
confirm saving documents several times in sequence.
