I too. Adding a preference? (default off)

Perhaps ... but another option I thought of would be to get the alert panel
displayed when you quit from GWorkspace to provide a third option.  At the
moment it says 'Do you really want to quit?' with Yes/No buttons.  It could
say 'Yes'/'All Application'/'No' ... so that you an choose at the point
where you confirm that you are shutting down GWorkspace. I think that might
be nicer than a hidden user default.

If GWorkspace is used as a session-manager and is started as a last program
from .xsession, quitting it would terminate all applications anyway, so alert
panel with three options would be misleading ('All Applications' would
terminate all apps gracefully, while 'Yes' would just kill all apps by killing
X server).

I stand corrected ...

I guess the idea of a user default is best then ... if GWorkspace is used as an X-windows session manager, you could use a command-line argument to tell it to terminate applications when it is quit.

eg.

openapp GWorkspace.app -ActAsSessionManager YES
