Regarding the Quit option, there are two quit options (at least in my
build). One in the File menu (this one has the Apple-Q shortcut) and
the other on the Application menu. From the little I've read about Mac
programming, the Application menu's Quit option comes by default on
all application, you don't even have to program it. I'm guessing that
should the File->Quit option be removed, we'd be left just with the
quit option in the Application menu (and I think that's the "correct"
Apple way to do it) including the Apple-Q shortcut. Some thing else
regarding the Quit command. If you hit Apple-Q on for example an SQL
Query window, only that window closes. Apple-Q should completely quit
the application and all windows of that application. But this is
probably too Apple specific to be implemented easily. Anyway, that's
just a couple of UI comments I have, and I have pretty much zero Apple
UI knowledge. Besides that, it works GREAT !! no a single problem so
far. Good Work
