I probably didn't explain enough. Alt-F4 is the default at least on Windows 
and Linux (KDE). But it is a window manager shortcut, not an application one.

The usual default shortcuts are Ctrl-Q to quit an application and Ctrl-W to 
close a window. We have right now the Alt-F4 shortcut on our Quit item in the 
File menu. Something that no other application does AFAICT.
