One more bit of information from Daniel A. Steffen in response to a PR  
I submitted:

=== begin quote ===

Iif the tcl proc '::tk::mac::Quit' is defined, it gets called instead  
of exit upon receipt of a 'quit' apple event (which is what the  
standard quit menu item sends, as well as other entities in the system  
such as the dock menu quit item or the graceful Finder restart/ 
shutdown, this is why the quit menu item is special).  
If ::tk::mac::Quit returns false, the application is not quit.

other default apple event handlers are also defined, c.f.
