Cool, I definitely think this needs to be standardized.

Ok.  "Completely hide this window and remove it from my tasklist" does
sound more complex than "open some window".  

Anyways though, for now I've decided that consistency is the most

this hiding behavior on left click.  Once we come up with a solid
consensus on this, we should fix all the apps at once.
