      FYI, the last I needed this event, I wrote a function to do this. It is
      part of genutils.vim as NotifyWinClose(). Here is the implementation
      (written as a generalization), it is kind of heuristic (see
      CheckWindowClose). I will be happy to see a WinClose event though.

      let s:notifyWindow = {}
      function! genutils#AddNotifyWindowClose(windowTitle, functionName)
      let bufName = a:windowTitle

      let s:notifyWindow[bufName] = a:functionName

      "let g:notifyWindow = s:notifyWindow " Debug.

      " Start listening to events.
      aug NotifyWindowClose
      au WinEnter * :call genutils#CheckWindowClose()
      au BufEnter * :call genutils#CheckWindowClose()
      aug END

      function! genutils#RemoveNotifyWindowClose(windowTitle)
      let bufName = a:windowTitle

      if has_key(s:notifyWindow, bufName)
      call remove(s:notifyWindow, bufName)
      if len(s:notifyWindow) == 0
      "unlet g:notifyWindow " Debug.

      aug NotifyWindowClose
      aug END

      function! genutils#CheckWindowClose()
      if !exists('s:notifyWindow')

      " Now iterate over all the registered window titles and see which one's are
      " closed.
      for nextWin in keys(s:notifyWindow)
      if bufwinnr(s:FindBufferForName(nextWin)) == -1
      let funcName = s:notifyWindow[nextWin]
      " Remove this entry as these are going to be processed. The caller can
      " them back if needed.
      unlet s:notifyWindow[nextWin]
      "call input("cmd: " . cmd)
      call call(funcName, [nextWin])

      Here is a test case that shows how to use it:

      function! NotifyWindowCloseF(title)
      call input(a:title . " closed")

      function! RunNotifyWindowCloseTest()
      call input("Creating three windows, 'ABC', 'XYZ' and 'b':")
      split ABC
      split X Y Z
      split b
      call genutils#AddNotifyWindowClose("ABC", "NotifyWindowCloseF")
      call genutils#AddNotifyWindowClose("X Y Z", "NotifyWindowCloseF")
      call input("notifyWindow: " . string(s:notifyWindow))
      au NotifyWindowClose WinEnter
      call input("Added notifications for 'ABC' and 'XYZ'\n".
      \ "Now closing the windows, you should see ONLY two notifications:")
