Can't we ask users if they really want to kill the application before
we go and kill it?

(something like
Title: "LibreOffice is currently active."
Message: "As long as LibreOffice is active, it can not be removed. Do
you want to close LibreOffice now?
Warning: you will lose any document you are currently working with in

And, really we should detect if only the quick starter is active (no
open files) and if that's the case why not just kill it?
