What other apps close with Ctrl+Q on Windows? My guess would be only a few that originate from the Linux world, but I may be wrong of course. On Windows the standard close shortcut is Alt+F4, which works without explicitly registering it.

That said, unless Ctrl+Q is commonly used for something else on Windows, I wouldn't really have a problem with making it an alternative shortcut for quitting.
