MultiMC will now exit after an instance is closed, as long as there are no windows left behind.
It will not create a main window, unless you actually launch it normally.
Direct launch of instance does not - by default - not create an instance window. This has to be enabled in the settings, or the instance has to crash.

I consider this a good enough solution until MultiMC can track running instances even through its own restart.

Closing {#1873, #1874, #1875}
