close framework, close child maps

I’m not a big fan of this behaviour in Authorware.

When you close a framework icon any maps or frameworks that are its’ children are also closed. I suspect it pre-dates the Close All Maps (Ctrl+Shift+W) menu option which would have made it useful as far as removing clutter goes. I think these days though clutter is less of an issue, what with the multiple monitors and enormous desktops.

As a compromising kinda guy, I propose a solution of holding down a key when closing the framework. Now as to whether that keypress overrides the current functionality or enables it…
