Post mouse() questions
I have two questions regarding the mouse() function.

The first question has to do with this passage from mouse's DOCUMENT statement:
Clicking a second button before releasing the first cancels the
mouse function, which will then return nil.
Ordinary text input also cancels the mouse function, which again
returns nil.

I have not been able to make either of these happen. If I click a second mouse button before releasing the first, the function appears to still return a non-nil result. If I type during the mouse wait, it does not interrupt or cancel; instead, I get the message "WARNING discarding keyboard input during window wait" and it continues to wait for me to click. In neither case do I get the nil result I expected. What am I misunderstanding?

My second question is, is there some way to gracefully handle the situation where a user closes all Yorick windows during a mouse() wait? Thus far, the only way two ways I have found to cancel a mouse wait is to click on a Yorick window or to use CTRL-C. The first is obviously impossible without windows, and the second will completely interrupt what you were doing. As a related feature request, would it be possible for Yorick to notice that the window that mouse() is waiting on has closed, and consequently return nil at that time?
