It would be very convenient if there was an option
to avoid the prompt when XDarwin is quit.

This is particularily important on a machine with
multiple users. When one person tries to log out of
OS X, if they forget that they had XDarwin running,
the logout times out and anyone can then access
their account.

    Logout timeout happens with lots of programs, including Terminal and any program with unsaved files. It's probably a reasonable option to add, but not as the default.

    I agree that it should not be default, but it is an
    important option. Terminal, for example, has an option
    for no prompt on quit.

    In XFree86 4.4.0 we handle this the same as Apple's X11. Any window
    manager that uses the AppleWM extension can request that XDarwin not
    query on quit. This leaves the policy up to the window manager where it
    (probably) belongs.
