[IronPython] [Noob]Ironpython catching Windows 'destroy' message, and posting confirm dialog

I assume there's just some event handler that you can hook up to a Python function.  If you post the C# or VB code someone here can probably quickly translate it to IronPython.

Subject: [IronPython] [Noob]Ironpython catching Windows 'destroy' message, and posting confirm dialog

Real new (since yesterday) to IronPython. I've just inherited a project in I-P/XAML/.NET and a big bug list to go with it. In our main app, we display a
"Close" button; clicking it brings up a confirmation dialog and exits the app only if user clicks "yes, I want to quit". We'd like to have the same behavior if the user clicks the 'Windows close' ("X" in the top right corner). I've found examples that supposedly do this in other languages, but they don't seem to translate to Python readily. Anyone know how to do this successfully in I-P?
