the term "hide" (with quotation marks) in that document. This can be
implemented trivially with the three-line patch below in

I thought about that but what happens for document based application
without a window ?

By the way, with your patch, the hide command leaves the application
menu visible.

Ummm, yes. I have tried the patch only in combination with setting the
