It can. :)

closeStack isn't necessarily the same as quitting, for example when 
you have multiple windows. Closing all open sockets while libUrl is 
doing something is not a good idea. It shouldn't harm if you really 
are quitting, but if say your closeStack handler ran when a status 
window closed during a download, you could be in trouble. On shutdown 
would be a better place to do this.
