No, "Quit" should quit. It might do so graciously, offering you the

Yes, but how exactly should that be done? I mean, the application itself
is able to ignore normal signals. So when it doesn't quit and, like
Transmission, simply hides the window and keeps doing its thing; should
that be considered a bug in Transmission? Or will the launcher wait a
certain amount and then kill it, or what? In the case with
Transmission, when you really tell it to quit, it will display a dialog
asking you to wait for status updates to be sent, etc. This can take
some time. How will this be handled?
