When app nature warrants that - see my IM example - hiding and not
closing makes sense. In other cases (like RB), it doesn't. It really is
annoying to remember that little special case in Gossip, when closing
all message windows is ok, but closing buddy list closes app. It's
annoying, and actually complicates mental model

It also needs means of explicit directory management - is it already
there in 0.9? Otherwise, you can get "zombie" dirs, which were added
once, but can in no way be removed from RB

Nice to hear
/me makes mental note to play with 0.9 one of the following days :)
