You should augment `can-close?' instead of `on-close'.

The `on-close' method is called after the decision is made to close the
frame; the frame is closed after `on-close' returns. But `can-close?'
is called first, and it determines whether the frame will be closed
(and whether `on-close' methods will be called as a result).
