In popup menu there are various usefull options such go to screen, about etc … but along with these we have also a classic iconify option, so i though we probably missing a "quit" one here !
Considering how it currently works also in Window.class gadget when a quit option exist along with iconify, i wonder if a "quit" option could be added also into this MUI popup menu … perhaps just below the "iconify" one

Do we really need something like this?

The iconify icon in the window title bar can be configured to be invisible. Hence the popup menu entry is an alternative to an otherwise inaccessible function. However, the close gadget of a window is not user configurable and hence a popup menu entry is not required.

True, however still some very specific case when this eventuality may happen :-)
For example programs supporting certain kiosk mode implementations and so on

According to the documentation even MUI itself can eventually hide the close gadget by settings false the MUIA_Window_CloseGadget attribute

So yes, while it's certain not a common case, in rare case it might be usefull

The close gadget exists to close a window, not to quit an application. It might be used for that purpose in the most cases, but not in every case. Sometimes it is required to have a window without a close gadget, i.e. a simple yes/no requester. And such a window usually has no popup menu either.

From my point of view there are enough ways to quit an application already. We don't need yet another one.
