Trying to send a close button event to the app's windows is probably
our best short-term approach; slightly longer term, we could have apps
expose a standard interface for Quit (e.g. over dbus).

Knowing how to restart is trickier, (though we could use the
window-to-app mapping system we need for gnome 3 anyways) but it's
also very simple in this case if we require that packages contain at
most one .desktop file.
