How did that issue eventually get resolved?
I originally started the proposal for a window close
callback about a year ago, because it was needed to make
multi-window support in GLOW work right.
One of the authors of GLOW came up with a fix to
GLUT, but couldn't get it in.
The general idea was that the old exit-on-close
behavior would be provided by making the default
window close callback do an exit. If the user
provided a window close callback, and didn't exit
from within it, the GLUT main loop would eventually
return after the last window was closed. New flags
and modes were thus unnecessary.
(On an related note, there's a discussion on
Slashdot today about widget toolkits for OpenGL.
That issue is heating up again.)
