Closing is currently bound to the window's reference count. You can close it
by assigning Null to every variable holding the window object. To implement
a Close method, I would need to know how to mark an object as invalid using
the interpreter APIs after I destroyed its contents, even if other parts of
the program still hold a reference to the window. Can you tell me?
