On Mon, Sep 20, 2021 at 09:25:53AM +0200 I heard the voice of
Frank Steiner, and lo! it spake thus:

A quick look at the wmctrl source (close_window() func) shows that -c
is sending a _NET_CLOSE_WINDOW request

We don't seem to have any support for that.  Quick check: it'd
probably be in ewmh_atoms.in, to create the atom for the implementing
code to use.  Also we'd advertise it in _NET_SUPPORTED; see `xprop
-root _NET_SUPPORTED` for the list of EWMH stuff we claim to handle.

So...   it's _possible_, but only if someone implements it   8-}
