I personally have a dmenu script bound to mod1+shift+q, which has
options for lock, exit, shutdown etc. It requires that it is called by
dwm so it knows what process to kill. This is more suckless than the
zenity solution (dmenu) and provides more functionality than just a
confirmation. Perhaps it is of use.
